It was hard to say who had more fun at the Park Place Lexus & Jaguar – Dallas Stars Casino Night February 25th at Park Place Lexus in Plano: the Dallas Stars players or the more than 650 fans who sold out the popular event.

Stars players and coaches served as casino dealers and helped raise $325,000 for the Dallas Stars Foundation, which is a 41% increase over last year’s $230,000 raised.  Fans enjoyed the intimate access and camaraderie with their favorite Stars players as well as the Mardi Gras-themed cuisine from Cool River and signature beverages.

“I think this was the best Casino Night yet,” said Jordan Case, president of Park Place Lexus and Park Place Jaguar. “This year’s ‘Diamond Champagne’ raffle sold out in 10 minutes. And the live auction grossed nearly double what it did last year. Everyone had a good time and the proceeds went to a great cause.”
