Park Place\/Dallas Stars Casino Night Once Again a Success

The Eighth Annual Park Place Dealerships/Dallas Stars Casino Night was held Thursday night at Park Place Motorcars Dallas. The event was another smashing success. Stars players and coaches were featured as dealers of various casino games including blackjack, craps and roulette, among others.

Guests enjoyed a delicious cocktail buffet courtesy of Maggiano's Little Italy Northpark in a fantastic atmosphere provided by the new Park Place Motorcars Dallas showroom. Everyone involved has a great time.

"I don't know who is having a better time tonight -- the guests or the players," said Marty Turco in-between jobs as a blackjack dealer and a roulette wheel spinner. "This is always a fun event and it is all for a good cause. Park Place does a great job in hosting Casino Night."

More than 400 people attended this year's Park Place/Dallas Stars Casino Night event, which is estimated to have raised over $100,000 for the Dallas Stars Foundation. The Foundation supports local children's charities that positively impact the lives of children through teamwork, interaction and education.

"This is such a fun event for our organization and our fans," said Dallas Stars President Jim Lites. "We enjoy spending the evening with our fans and have a great time while raising money for the Foundation. This year we couldn't be more excited to see everyone and enjoy the surroundings of Park Place's newest dealership."

The silent auction at the event included sports memorabilia, including many Dallas Stars and NHL autographed items, as well as movie and entertainment collectors items. Park Place Dealerships also included some nice items for the auctions, including use of a luxury car for a week or a weekend. The live auction, hosted by the Stars' own Ralph Strangis and Daryl Reaugh, included exclusive items such as a Rolling Stones autographed guitar that went for $6,000, and a framed hockey stick signed by the entire 1980 "Miracle on Ice" USA Hockey Team, among others.

The Stars coaches were also in on the casino games, with Head Coach Dave Tippett having one of the more popular blackjack tables at one point of the evening. The cheering could be heard throughout the dealership from Tip's table.

"I think they liked playing at my table because they were winning," said Tippett with a laugh. "I won't give away my secret, but let's just say that my dealing method includes some flexibility in card selection."

Fans were able to get up close and personal with all of the Stars players, talk with them and obtain autographs. It was definitely a very fun night.

"Park Place Dealerships has always enjoyed hosting Casino Night," said Neil Grossman, president of Park Place Motorcars. "We have provided a few special items for the silent auction and we hope the evening is a tremendous success for the Dallas Stars Foundation."

Founded in 1987, Park Place Dealerships is comprised of nine dealerships in Dallas/Fort Worth and Houston. Park Place represents high-end brands including Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Maserati, Lexus, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Land Rover and Jaguar.

Committed to providing the finest vehicles, service and amenities, Park Place's philosophy of "Experts in Excellence" has led to winning numerous awards throughout the years. Park Place Lexus was named a 2005 Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award winner.
