GAMBLING FOR CHARITY—-THE DUTCH WAY !
The Dutch have always been known to be a different genre. Be it the Night Life of Amsterdam or the “special Coffee Bars” serving the special smokes. Be it the church in the middle of the Red Light Area or the Country itself, which is almost 3 meters below the sea level. When they are so different in everything , so how could their AGM or the Charity Project not be different.
This is what I experienced during my recent visit to the Dutch AGM in Woerden, Netherlands from the 14th to the 16th of June 2012. The event was anyways special to our Table as 7 of our fellow Tablers travelled together to attend the German and Netherland AGM’s from 8 th to 16th of June 2012, meeting almost 700 different Tablers from different Round Tables of different Countries.
After the Banner exchange and the AGM during the day on the 15th of June, the Gala dinner had been organized in a Castle in the middle of the picturesque town of Woerden, 20 kms from Amsterdam. After the Gala dinner, there was live band and a live counter of the best of the Wines and Cheese of Holland. A special feature of the evening was the Casino Night. Contrary to the common belief that Charity and Gambling were the interests of people of totally diverse outlooks, the Dutch prepared a perfect concoction of the two together. Gambling for Charity – that was the theme for the evening. Two Tables, one each for the Roulette and Black Jack were laid and were being managed by some professionals from the local casino clubs. The minimum stake was 1 Euro but whatever amount you buy the chips for, would go to Charity. There were no refunds.I took the chips for 50 Euros, thinking that for the first time in life it is going to be gambling, fun and play of luck but all for charity. Though the initial start was humble and the intentions noble but once on the Table, it was gambling as usual. Loud cheers for the Roulette numbers and a roar for the Black Jack. Drinks being served on the table (casino game table which was not round ofcourse) and beautiful females sitting all around. It was fun, it was gambling, it was charity and it was Tabling. Tablers from all over the world being together and cheering each other. Changing from one table to other, giving good luck chips to each other and in between going for a dance on a favourite number. Ofcourse, here also our Chairman Tr. Rohit Aggarwal stole the show by dancing in his unique gypsy form resulting in everyone forming a circle around him and cheering him up. The evening was something which one never wants to end. But as all good things have to come to and end even the Casino night had to end. The person managing the Table declared that it was the last draw of cards for the day and everyone chipped in their stakes for the last time.
Not very strange for any Casino game, the Dealer got a perfect Black Jack on the last game and almost everyone lost all their stakes. Almost everyone but not all. Strangely, I was still left with some chips with which I went back to the organizer to return them back and donate them to their Charity. Having done so, I was about to move out to the Dance Floor when 2 of the organizers approached me and informed me something strange. I HAD WON A JACKPOT.I had won a Jackpot for 1100 Euros. It was the first time I ever remember having won in a Casino and that also a Jackpot. There were people congratulating me all around and I got the feeling as if I was a celebrity and everyone vying to shake hands with me. The evening could not have been more perfect.
I immediately discussed the situation with my Chairman Tr. Rohit Aggarwal and the other
Tablers from CRT 216 and we took a decision that we would donate this amount to a Charity Project. We discussed the same with the host Table and it was finalized that 550 Euros would be donated to a Service Project of the Host Table and the other 550 Euros would be deposited to our own Table Project Account back in India.
Who says gambling is bad…!!!!
