The Ronald McDonald House in Danville is part of a program that is a home away from home for families who are dealing with the emotional, physical and financial challenges of having a child in the hospital or receiving outpatient care. It is indeed a very worthy cause, and the good folks at the Milton Rotary Club are helping to support it by holding their 17th “Casino Night” on April 6 at 7 p.m.
Casino Night will be held at the Watson Inn in Watsontown and is open to the public. Try your hand, using crazy cash to play Black Jack, Poker, Roulette, Craps, Horse Racing, and Beat the Dealer. Ticket price is $15 in advance and $20 at the door, which includes free crazy cash and refreshments.
A raffle will be held with a Traeger Tailgater 20, 19,500 BTU Pellet Grill donated by Cole’s Hardware as the Grand Prize. Use the crazy cash you win to get chances to win great prizes donated by local businesses. They have many gift certificates donated by local restaurants, rounds of golf, gift baskets, tickets to theater and sporting events and much more.
“The Milton Rotary Club began this event 17 years ago when I was the president of the Club,” Bonnie McDowell, former president of the Milton Rotary Club, told Webb Weekly. “We were looking for new fundraisers to help support the projects that we do in the community. I believe the local Chapter of the American Red Cross had held a similar event in prior years that I attended and it was fun, but they stopped holding it, so it was a good time for us to pick it up.”
She continued, “This year we decided to partner with the Ronald McDonald House to try to build up the event. Non-profits partnering together and pulling our resources can make a bigger more successful event, and that is what we are trying to do. By collaborating, we are working together to benefit both organizations.”
According to McDowell, the event promises to be a great evening of fun. For the cost of admission you can play casino games all evening and by winning “Crazy Cash,” you have opportunities to win great prizes.
Throughout the evening you can play games, buy raffles tickets, 50/50 tickets, and ‘rip-offs.’
Tickets are on sale now through Eventbrite, at the Watson Inn, the Milton YMCA and also will be available at the door. For further information or questions call Bonnie at 570-286-5636.
