CCF sponsored the first Casino Nights based on a stellar event, "22 On The Red", run annually by San Francisco's foundation and witnessed by President Don Schwamb on a visit there in 1986. The first two events were held in the elegant Grain Exchange Room in spring of 1987 and 1988, and were extremely popular events. With declining revenues, the event was relocated to the War Memorial Center for 1989.
