The Austin CPA LEAP (Leaders Emerging in the Accounting Profession) Committee hosted its Third Annual Casino Night on Thursday, October 19, 2017 at the American Legion-Charles Johnson House. Besides inviting the entire Austin CPA Chapter, other guests included members from the Austin Young Lawyers Association (AYLA) and FPA (Financial Planners Association) of Austin.

Two Austin CPA Chapter members worked tirelessly on this event: Jessica Sajak and Lara Akinboye. Sean Skellenger, LEAP Committee Chair, also deserves an honorable mention for securing the beverages served at the event. Their hard work is appreciated by everyone!

Also worthy of recognition are the sponsors of the Casino Night. Without their assistance, this event would not have been possible. The 2017 LEAP Casino Night was generously sponsored by:

CPACharge
Xero
Brown Distributing Co.
Becker Professional Education
Bette Williams, CPA

Not only did our wonderful sponsors support the LEAP Casino Night financially, they even provided prizes for our events! CPACharge donated a soft-sided YETI cooler won by David Tucker. Becker Professional Education donated a CPA Exam Review scholarship won by our very own Jessica Sajak! The Austin CPA Chapter also provided a few gift cards which were won by Nick Moore, David Tucker (he won big at this event), Mary Kay Robinson and Jim McMullin. Several others went home with leftover beer donated by Brown Distributing Co.
