2022 Casino Fundraiser

Dates: Sunday, October 2 and Monday, October 3. 

Where: Starlight Casino, West Edmonton Mall

Volunteer Information:

  • Volunteers can enjoy a free meal, snacks, and beverages while volunteering for the casino.
  • Sage will provide taxi vouchers to volunteers who require transportation, either to casino and/or back home.
  • It is recommended that volunteers bring phone chargers as a lot of people like to play games, text, chat, and just surf the internet. Volunteers are also free to bring in books or something to do while it is slow.
  • If a group of friends wish to volunteer together, it is a great chance to socialize. 
  • If volunteers are strangers at the start, they will not be by the end.  It is a wonderful way to meet other people. 
  • If it is your 1st time volunteering, please know that you will be trained and an advisor is present throughout the event. In fact, any transaction over $200 needs a witness, and any transaction over $3000 requires an advisor to be present and watching. Volunteers will never be alone. 

Volunteer Roles

Below is a brief description of the volunteer roles. 

Please note, once a volunteer works in one role they cannot transfer to another role. For example, if a volunteer is a cashier on day 1 of the casino and returns the next day, they must remain as a cashier.  That individual cannot become a banker on day 2 nor do count room.
