Coastal Habitat for Humanity will hold its second annual “Play to Build” event as a casino night this month at the Taylor Pavilion on the beach in Belmar.

“We have been working hard at our many community programs since our Play to Build event last year, so now it’s time to have some fun,” said Maureen Mulligan, executive director, Coastal Habitat.  “Casino Night will have six gaming tables as well as thousands of dollars in prizes, including a 32 inch flat screen television and beautiful jewelry.”

Each supporter of "Play to Build: Casino Night" will receive $50 in free gaming chips.

The six casino-quality betting tables will feature blackjack, craps, roulette and three-card poker managed by experienced dealers.

Proceeds from “Play to Build: Casino Night” will benefit the organization’s new Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative.  Coastal Habitat was selected as one of 100 Habitat for Humanity affiliates in the US to participate in the NRI program which focuses on providing home weatherization, safety and aesthetic improvements to entire neighborhoods – from Spring Lake to Ocean Township.
