I've been to different wake nights in the Philippines. Many times the family would set the funeral service after 9 – 11 days. The period is long and tiring. It is a period the family chooses for many reasons. One of those reasons is to be with the dead person for a longer time. Another reason is to wait for the arrival of family members from far locations. Locations can be from other local area or abroad. One more reason is to raise funds. Since burying a corpse is costly, funds are needed to put the body 6 feet below the ground for good.
The best gambling activity is still available in casinos. The casino events dallas is one of those best places. The 11 – day period of the wake is not just for people to cry and express their condolences with the family. The place is set-up with different gambling tables. Tables are used to cater people who will gamble to kill time, to win money, and more importantly to give money out of each wins. Some would play bingo, mahjong, tong – its, pusoy-dos, and the best of all, the "saklay". All these mentioned gambling activities are card games and dice. With these gambling activities, the family is able to collect money which is freely donated by people.
So, casino or gambling can be a good fundraising activity? I think, yes. If the culture has great respect for gambling, like the Philippines, it could be a way of raising funds for a great cause. If all details of gambling will be legalized, fundraising can be done properly. Imagine a simple wake can raise five thousand or more in a night. How much more a casino event can generate? But before getting your hands wet and dirty with gambling, do the legal things, first.
I do not have the exact details to tell you what to do. But as a basis of your legal action, Philippine culture during wakes doesn't need any permit. Gambling is accepted as part of wakes. It happens during nights until, sometimes, dawn. So, expect your glassy eyes to deal with gambling. But preparing such fundraising event can be simple and beneficial. For as long as there are no illegal activities included in this kind of activity, all will be safe. One key action is to go to the nearest police office or local government offices and ask for the needed documents to prepare. If you can pull off this activity, that would be amazing for gambling enthusiasts.
