After a highly successful and sold out first year, THE GREAT GATSBY BALL returns to the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences Saturday, May 19th for CASINO NIGHT 2018 to help benefit homelessness prevention and outreach.

Join Gatsby and friends at Vegas-style tables - BLACKJACK, POKER, CRAPS, ROULETTE and MORE. The stakes are high, with a chance to win dozens of unique prizes worth THOUSANDS of dollars. TRY YOUR LUCK! BET IT ALL! More chips means more chances to win.
Top prizes include a brand-new Apple iPhone X and a Louis Vuitton® Speedy 30 Bag

Step off the gaming floor and onto the INFAMOUS GATSBY DANCE DOME in the museum’s Daily Planet Theater. The party rages all night with celebrity VIDEO DJ AL-SKI LOVE.
