A NIGHT OF GAMBLING, FUN, DANCING, EATING AND DRINKING
The Kiwanis Strike It Rich party is one of the major fundraisers for the SouthEast Volusia Kiwanis Club. For many years, it has probably been THE most fun party in the New Smyrna Beach area. The event is held at the beautiful Brannon Center in New Smyrna Beach.
We sell up to 400 tickets for $150. Each ticket is good for two people for a night of dancing, open bar, and dinner. Each of the 400 tickets is assigned a number (#1-400). We pull numbered bingo balls throughout the night. If we pull your number you are "out" for the chance to win big money.
If your ticket number is one of the last three balls pulled, you win cash. Third place pays $2,000 cash, second place pays $3,000 cash, and if your ticket is the last number pulled, you get paid $10,000 cash. There are also random payouts of $100 periodically throughout the night as well as three 50/50 drawings (you get half the cash, Kiwanis gets the other half), two Wheelbarrow of Cheer drawings, and 4 "coverall" bingo card games (first person to cover their bingo card gets $100). Bottom line- it's a fun night out.
In the past few years we have been graced with additional monies from generous sponsors. This increases our income for the event. From a sponsor viewpoint, this is a great opportunity to be showcased to some of the most influential people in the community.
All of the proceeds from Strike It Rich are then distributed to children's causes in Southeast Volusia County. Every dollar stays in the county for kids’ programs and to local schools for their special projects.
It was fortunate that we held the event in 2020 before the coronavirus epidemic caused lockdowns. We are evaluating what our plans, if any, are as we move forward. It is unlikely right now that we will hold this event in 2021.
2021 Event Canceled due to COVID
