Registration is now open for Maroon & Gold Casino Night!

Registration is now open for Maroon & Gold Casino Night — to be held Saturday, April 22, 2023 at 6 p.m. in Centennial Gymtorium! 

All funds raised support MMA academic, athletic, cadet life and leadership programs, which help us provide an optimal experience for cadets to reach their full potential. 

In the past held as a gala, Maroon & Gold 2023 will feature a Roaring ’20s Casino Night theme. Over the years, Maroon & Gold has raised more than $1 million to support our cadets! Our 2023 goal is $500,000. 

Guests will enjoy blackjack, roulette, craps, poker, and War card games — plus a money wheel game and a Let it Ride game. Traditional Maroon & Gold raffles, a live auction, music, and a few presentations will also be included. An online auction will precede Maroon & Gold in the weeks prior to the event.
