It's time for a new season of Casper's original Thursday night Party With A Purpose

- Thankful Thursday, at the smoke-free Beacon Club!

We're back Thursday nights for the Winter/Spring 2022 season with our friends at Tito's Vodka as we add to over $1.6 million you've helped raise for local charities - and as always, Thankful is the only event of its kind that gives 100% of the proceeds to local organizations doing local good.

Join us on Thursday nights starting January 20th - there will be multiple chances to win $500 in the bottle draw just for being in the room, and Tito's will generously give the same amount to EACH of our charities to start them off and there is a FREE Tito's cocktail for everyone 21+.

The Beacon is smoke-free and this event is family-friendly so gather up your entire crew and show up for live auctions, the infamous Lucky Duck game, 50/50 raffles, and lots of fun and surprises along the way.

The party starts at 5 each night, and the live auction gets underway around 6:30.

2022 Schedule - Here's who you'll be helping out this Winter/Spring at Thankful Thursday:
