Annual Events

Here at When Charity Works, we have several annual fundraisers to help support our programs.  They aren’t just any ol’ fundraisers, they are an experience!


Eat the Street is a lip-smacking celebration of the tastiest, messiest and most irresistible street food. From Tijuana-style tacos served out of an Airstream trailer to classic dogs with all the fixins’ and sirloin burgers slathered in bacon — food cart fare is the hottest trend going.  Families can come and enjoy great eats while shopping for a bargain or two at the Charity Swap Meet! All non-profit organizations may set up a table to help fund their programs… everyone wins! This event takes place Saturday, Sept 8th, 2018 at Sam’s Town Casino Las Vegas.


A charity 9 pin no-tap doubles tournament. Doubles tournaments require two people per team. 9 pin no-taps are the type of bowling tournament that knocking down 9 pins on the first ball counts as a strike.

Besides the doubles tournament prizes, bowlers will also be able to enter side contests for additional money, including high game and high average, (both scratch and handicap) and raffle prizes.

 For Poker Gives:
