Stop stowing your extra coins away for a big time Las Vegas trip. Why? Because Las Vegas is coming to West Chester on Friday, March 22, complete with professionally dealt blackjack, craps and roulette tables. What’s even better? The money you spend on West Chester Parks and Recreation’s 3rd Annual Casino Night won’t end up in the bottom of some random slot machine. Instead, all proceeds will benefit the “Send a Kid to Camp Fund,” which provides underprivileged youth the opportunity to enjoy WCPR’s summer camp programs. Last year, 20 children were assisted, but with your help this year, they hope to surpass that achievement in 2013.

Tickets to the upcoming Casino Night, unfolding at Milestone Events (600 East Market Street) from 7 to 11 p.m., are available at $40 per person, or $75 per couple. Tickets include appetizers, drinks and “funny money” to gamble the night away. The more money you make at the gaming tables, the better chance you have at winning great prizes. The prize pool is valued at more than $2,500 and includes bus trips, dinners, gift certificates and other donations from local businesses.

Top notch prizes at past events were donated by Wegmans Downingtown, Timeless Dwellings, WCHOMETEAM.COM, Shop Rite, Side Bar & Restaurant, Taylor’s Music Studio, West Chester Computer Doctors, Rothwell Document Solutions, The Media Theatre, The Woodlands at Phillips, Longwood Gardens, The Kitchen Studio at Pine Street, Mary Kay Cosmetics, New Haven Pizza, West Chester Golf & Country Club, Philadelphia Flyers, The 50/50 Company, Landmark AmericanaMas Mexicali CantinaGadaleto’s Seafood Market, Buca Di Beppo, Honey Brook Golf Club, Smaltz’s Harley Davidson, Barnaby’s of West Chester, Cakes and Candies By MaryellenKati Mac Floral Design, Custom Discount Apparel, Dr. Ron Briglia, Play-A-Round Golf, Little Sprout’s Village, Ron’s Original Bar and Grille, Kiwi Frozen Yogurt, Amani’s BYOB, The Five Senses, Klein Transportation, and Organic Mechanics.

However, even if you don’t snag a prize from one of the businesses listed above, everyone’s a winner at the 3rd Annual Casino Night since all guests will leave with a Swag Bag stuffed with fun items from sponsors. In addition, a portion of the evening will be reserved for a silent auction and to recognize Mitch’s Market Street Gym for their years of support to West Chester Parks and Recreation Department.
