The Casino Night and Gala is SPE-GCS' scholarship fundraiser event where you join fellow Oil and Gas leaders for an exciting evening enjoying hors d’oeuvres, dinner, refreshments, casino style games and the chance to win several grand raffle prizes. A Texas Hold'em poker tournament is also held for up to 30 people. Spouses are encourged to join. 


All funds raised at the casino night & gala benefit the SPE-GCS student scholarship program, supporting our future O&G leaders.

The recent downturn has unfortunately resulted with many highly skilled leaders leaving the industry. As the market recovers, it will be more important than ever to encourage students to seek careers in O&G.



WHAT: Included with each individual event ticket are 2 drink tickets, hors d’oeuvres, dinner (high ball tables), and $2000 for casino style game play.

  • A poker tournament of up to 30 people will be held starting at 8pm, winners announced at 11:00 - 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prizes awarded. (Note: To enter tournament need use the $2000 game play ticket that is already included, or purchase a new ticket for $20. Unlimited Rebuys are also available for $20)

  • Cashing Out - For every $1000, you will get 1 prize ticket to add to the raffle items. $20 is equal to $2000 of Game Play, 2 drink tickets, or 2 prize tickets. No limit rebuys. Raffle prize winners to be announced at 11:00, must be present to win.
