Superstition Mountain Golf and Country Club hosted the “Casino Carnivale at the Mountain” on March 22 in support of Boys & Girls Clubs of the East Valley.

The charity casino night and dinner party raised more than $148,000 to benefit programs focusing on academic success, healthy lifestyles, character development and the arts, according to a release.

Members, residents and friends of the club who attended “Casino Carnivale at the Mountain” played casino games and ate New Orleans cuisine. There were raffle and auction prizes. There was live entertainment by NOLAZ Band, an Arizona-based group that plays New Orleans-style soul music, according to the release.

The funds raised from “Casino Carnivale at the Mountain” will go specifically toward BGCEV’s Superstition Mountain Branch, in Apache Junction. The branch provides youth ages 5-18 with after-school programs, teen leadership skills, youth sports leagues and homework and tutoring assistance.
