Gatsby’s Gratitude - CREW Silicon Valley Casino Night Thank You

November 1, 2022
Written by: Laura Hulberg

CREW Silicon Valley extends its heartfelt gratitude to all those who made our Great Gatsby themed Casino Night a smashing success. Held at Great America Commons, the event was absolutely dazzling, with ritzy décor, delicious bites, exciting casino games and a swanky live band. The photographer captured some great photos and we also had fun in the photo booth with plenty of props to choose from. 


None of this would have been possible without the organizational prowess of our Director of Programs, Laura Kreuger, and the special Casino Night Committee.
