Boys & Girls Club Raises Nearly $20,000 at Casino Night
The W-K Corral was packed with cowboys, saloon girls and barkeeps during Boys & Girls Clubs of West Central Missouri’s fifth annual Casino Night, presented by The W-K Family of Dealerships, held Thursday, Oct. 12.
The Tombstone-themed event raised nearly $20,000 for Club programs and included blackjack, craps, roulette, and more.
“Casino Night is always our most fun event, this year especially because so many of our guests dressed up to match the theme,” said Assistant Director of Development Gabby White. “We’re thankful for everyone who sponsored, attended and volunteered to make the evening such a success. And a special thanks to W-K for their ongoing support of our Club and the kids we serve each day.”
