If you love games such as Texas Hold’em, Roulette or Craps, then the second annual Casino Night should be the perfect opportunity to put your strategies to a test. The Casino Night is planned for Saturday, March 3, at Cape Fear Vineyard and Winery and tickets cost $50 each.

Chuck Heustess said Bladen’s Bloomin’ Agri-Industrial and the Committee of 100 have teamed up to host the fundraiser called “Casino Night.” Doors will open to the public at 7 p.m. and games will begin at 7:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at Cape Fear Vineyard or from the Bladen County Economic Development Office. Heustess said all proceeds go to the Committee of 100.

Heustess said there will be eight black jack tables, one Texas Hold’Em tables, three Roulette games, and one craps table. You will exchange your tickets for poker chips that are used to play the games. At 10:30 p.m. the games will close and you will exchange the chips you have earned playing the games for raffle tickets for prizes from local merchants.

“We did this event last year to see how people would like it. We were flooded with compliments,” said Heustess.

He said in addition to having fun playing the games, there will be opportunities to learn about the Committee of 100 and economic development in Bladen County.

“A lot of people learned what the Committee of 100 was and joined for the first time,” said Heustess.

This is an opportunity for Bladen County residents to come out and show their support for economic development in the county. For more information about Casino Night, you can call 910-645-2292.
