The goal within the two to three hour activity is for teams to devise a strategy to maximize winnings at the exciting professionally managed casino tables and “Eco-Activity Stations” around the room.
Teams visit all the tables and eco-activity stations and play to earn as many chips as possible as a team (not as individuals)! As they complete a table or activity station, teams also receive “Fact Cards” that include sentence fragments. When assembled in the correct order, the sentence fragments form environmental facts. At the close of this innovative, Las Vegas-style casino, team earnings are tallied and environmental facts are read aloud. Teams with correctly constructed facts earn bonus $$$ to add to their winnings!! The team with the most money at the end of the night wins!
Prizes can be awarded to the teams with the most chips, if desired, however, the true winners of the event are revealed at the end, when the group learns that a GET GREEN kit will be donated on behalf of each team to the local community, which consists of items that will help beneficiary families have greener homes and communities, and will help them protect the environment! These kits are also useful because they are products that will save families money by going green!
Impact 4 Good partners with local Habitat for Humanity affiliates, community centers, schools and/or other community organizations to make the donation possible.
