Food 4 Kidz held a Casino Night Saturday as a fundraiser for the organization.

They had everything from blackjack to roulette, all with '20s music playing in the background.

Event Chair Mia Nadeau says they had a great turnout, with everyone dressed in outfits from the roaring '20s.

"This is our first time doing it, the first annual Casino Night, and we sold almost 400 tickets," said Nadeau.

The non-profit provides food for anyone in need in the area, something they started after Hurricane Michael when they realized the need was so great in our community, not only for children.

"We know that everybody was affected by the storm, so just to see what a fabulous event and how many people actually came to this to support this it's just mind-blowing," said Co-Chair of the Food 4 Kidz Casino Night Kristin Curole.

They said they plan on holding this event again next year.
