Rotary Casino Night to roll out two new games

Published 6:26 pm Tuesday, February 10, 2015

Rotarians know how to combine fun with fund-raising, as they have proven each year with the Rotary Casino Night.

This year the event will be held Saturday, February 28, at the Kirbo Center, beginning at 6:30 p.m.

It promises to be an evening of casino-style gaming, using fake money, and includes two new games of chance this year.

There will be a wine pull game, where you pick a cork then search for the bottle of wine it matches. One lucky player will win a bottle of Dom Perignon .

There will also be a balloon pop game with some of the balloons containing prizes.

As always there will be a silent auction featuring some weekend getaways, special meals and other treasures.

Once again the theme is the Roaring Twenties, and while it is not required to dress accordingly, several couples do so each year and have lots of fun trying to outdo each other. A photo booth will be available to record the evening’s attendees.

The club’s Casino Night has traditionally annually raised between $16,000 and $18,000, which is used to support Rotary’s service and commitment to educational programs.

Each year the club has purchased a 3-D Rover for a select school. This year the recipient will be Bainbridge Middle School. Cost of each program is about $13,000. The club also writes a grant each year that pays about $2,000 toward that expense. The 3-D Rover is a three- dimentional learning tool said to accelerate and enhance retention of learning.

Tickets are $50 each, which covers food, drink and play money. They are available from any Rotarian.

The Bainbridge Rotary Club invites the public to come join in the fun with friends, old and new while helping our schools.
