Below is a excerpt of a letter about the goals for this fundraiser from The Casino Night Events Committee:
“The 7th annual United Synagogue of Hoboken Casino Night is fast approaching and we need your help.The funds raised at Casino Night have always been used to support our local community, in addition to being the main fundraising event for the synagogue itself. This year, we are continuing that tradition with a new focus – helping to rebuild from two major recent disasters which deeply affected our city.In September, the Hoboken Charter School experienced a devastating fire on the second day of classes. Thankfully, all of the students and faculty were safely evacuated, but the building sustained significant damage. Some of the money we raise will be donated to the school to assist with their rebuilding effort.Secondly, as you probably know, the city of Hoboken was among the hardest hit locations during Hurricane Sandy. Flooding damaged ordestroyed many properties, including homes, businesses, and our synagogue building. Many will never recover. More than ever, our hometown needs our help – and we will be providing it by donating a portion of our proceeds to the Rebuild Hoboken Fund.Of course, we also want to continue the programs and community service events which are the soul of our synagogue community.”
