VAIL – It’s a grown up event to help out the really little kids.Each year, a group of early-education groups get together, split up the work, and throw a big party at the Marriott in Lionshead. This year’s Casino Night competed with several other events in town, but many locals look forward to the event as a chance to hone their Vegas skills and trade in their chips for fun prizes. Parents and staff from local pre-schools man the gaming tables and silent auction. The atmosphere is fun and festive.

“Our goal is to try to do as many events for the children as we can,” said Angela Mueller, an organizer of the event. “This is the one big fundraiser.” The goal was to raise $100,000.Those who attend aren’t limited to parents with children currently enrolled in one of the schools. Many parents whose children have long since graduated come back to support the event.”I could not have survived with ABC School during my children’s pre-school years,” said local lawyer Robin Deighan, whose children are now enrolled at Vail Mountain School. “It’s all about the socialization and the enrichment the schools and their staff offer.”
