9th Annual Vegas Night

Wayne County Vegas night event

Presented by Constellation Energy

The Wayne County Chapter of the American Red Cross is set to host its Ninth Annual “Vegas Night” fundraiser, presented by Constellation Energy, at the Palmyra VFW on Saturday, February 8, 2014.

“Come on out to Vegas Night, test your luck and have a great time for the Red Cross,” said James Love, Wayne County Red Cross Executive Director. “The proceeds help us continue to deliver vital services to our community in times of disaster, including assistance at house fires and deployments during disasters across the country."

Last year, Vegas Night hosted 300 people and raised more than $29,000 toward Red Cross disaster relief. The Red Cross expects to exceed that number this year.

Included with each ticket ($25 presale, $30 at the door) to the event, participants are given $20,000 in “Barton Bucks”, named after founder of the American Red Cross, Clara Barton. Anyone over the age 21 can play casino games such as Blackjack, Texas Hold ‘em, Roulette, Craps, Beat the Dealer, Over/Under, Chuck A Luck, and more. Presale ticket holders will be entered into a door prize drawing. Hors d’oeuvres, desserts and a cash bar will be available.

Throughout the evening, people can play the various table games, participate in raffles, and bid on silent auction items. Barton Bucks can be used for raffle tickets to win prizes and for the live auction held at the end of the event. Raffle tickets will also be sold for the chance to win a one-of-a-kind electric bike, signed by "Mike & Molly" star Melissa McCarthy.

Tickets are $25 each presale ($30 at the door) and can be purchased online by clicking here or by clicking the "Buy Tickets" button above. You can also buy tickets by calling (315) 331-3783 or you can purchase tickets at the Wayne County Red Cross Chapter. This year, people are encouraged to take advantage of the "Friends and Family" special and get four tickets for $80.
