News Release

---- — Las Vegas-style gaming is coming to Paris, Ill., with the  fourth annual Casino Night of Fun.

The Hospital & Medical Foundation of Paris Inc. will sponsor the event beginning at 6 p.m. on Saturday at Eagle Ridge Golf Course, 928 Clinton Road, Paris. Game tables open at 6:30 p.m.

The fundraising event will feature an evening of blackjack, poker, bang (an easier version of craps), hors d’oeuvres and a silent auction. All dealers are local volunteers. A cash bar will be available.

“Our annual casino night has been a very popular event,” said Kim Macke, foundation development director at Paris Community Hospital/Family Medical Center. “People can enjoy a fun night of gaming while helping Paris Community Hospital to enhance patient care.” Funds from this year’s event will help renovate bathrooms within patient rooms at PCH/FMC.

The cost is $55 per person, which includes $100 in casino “play money.” Additional play money can be purchased during the evening. All play money winnings will be redeemed for raffle tickets, which can be used to “purchase” prizes; no cash winnings will be paid out. Raffle prizes and silent auction items will include event tickets, and gift certificates for area restaurants, entertainment and relaxation.

For tickets or more information call Kim Macke at 217-465-2606, ext. 295, or visit
