NEW LENOX (September 23, 2016) – Providence Catholic High School’s Women’s Club will host its largest fundraiser of the year on Saturday, October 22 at the school, which is located 1800 West Lincoln Highway in New Lenox.
The school’s Sacred Heart Gymnasium will be transformed into a gaming paradise with playing tables resembling some of the finest casinos.
“We are bringing in GHS, a professional casino company with professional dealers and will make our gym resemble a Las Vegas Casino,” said Patty O’Connell, the club president. “People are amazed that they’re in a school gym.”
The event is open to the public and tickets are $75 per person. The entry fee includes dinner and $250 of funny money to play craps, blackjack or roulette with a chance to win raffle prizes. There will be a cash bar and a separate $50 buy in Texas Hold ‘Em card game for the first 50 registrants.
“Providence’s Casino Night is a great way to have a nice evening out close to home while helping a very worthy cause,” said Lillie Bowler-Mongello, the club’s vice-president.
A highlight of the evening is the array of silent auction items and raffle prizes.
“We are very fortunate to have families and businesses donate wonderful auction items and raffle prizes for Casino Night,” said Hidali Alejo who serves as secretary for the club. “We welcome area businesses to support one of the oldest schools in the area,” she said, noting that Providence Catholic will celebrate its centennial in 2018.
