Representative Scott Slater Wins Twin River Charity Blackjack Event

Over a dozen lawmakers of the state of Rhode Island took part in a charity blackjack event organized by Twin River Casino. The champion of this event, which happened to be the first of its kind at the casino, was Representative Scott Slater, who won a prize of $10k for his achievements. The entire amount was directed to the Assumption Church Food Pantry, a charity he wanted to donate to.

The charity blackjack event comprised six round tables at which the participants played blackjack till a winner emerged for each table. The six winners were then given an opportunity to take part in the final championship event, where they played another game of blackjack to determine the overall winner of the event.

Twin River Casino distributed $60,000 among 36 charities, including the Rhode Island Brain and Spine Tumor Foundation, the Rhode Island Community Food Bank, the Rhode Island Academic Decathlon, the Hearthside House in Lincoln, the Kent County YMCA, the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Rhode Island, Crossroads, Inspiring Minds, St. Mary’s Feast Society, and Woodlawn Catholic Regional School.

Among the participants were 16 general assembly members, including Dominick J. Ruggerio, the leader of the senate majority, and Gordon Fox, the speaker of the house.
