Bet on Success – About

Bet on Success is a casino night fundraiser that helps kids in need. We provide low-income and at-risk kids scholarships for pre-k education.

When you Bet on Success, you change lives. 

Here are 5 ways you make a difference:

 · You make kids smarter: Children need access to early education. 90% of a child’s brain capacity develops before the age of 5. Early ed is the best chance these kids have to succeed in life.

· You help kids succeed when they grow upDecades of research shows that while all kids benefit from early education, low-income kids show the greatest gains. They are more likely to graduate high school, go to college, and be financially self-sufficient as adults than their peers who don’t get help.

· You support some of our hardest working families. Low-income families struggle to cover the cost of early care and education. For low-income working families, child care and pre-K education are the families biggest expense. That is particularly true in our area where full time pre-K is over $10,000 per year.

· You make sure parents can get to work so they can support their kids. When parents with young children have a financial crisis, they get stuck in a spiral that’s hard to break. They can’t cover their childcare, which means they can’t get to work. When they can’t get to work, they can’t support their kids — or cover things like childcare.

· You level the playing field. 76% of kids in Bucks County who should be getting publicly funded Pre-K don’t get it because of budget limitations. You help change that when you Bet on Success.

Imagine: You do all of this while having a great night out with your friends! Thanks to our generous sponsors, every dollar you donate goes right to the kids.
