Vegas Night is back and better than ever, as the Racine Founder’s Rotary Club Foundation presents its annual fundraiser to support Camp Anokijig and the local Rotary Club for local community service projects. The main event will begin at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 11 at Fountain Banquet Hall in Sturtevant.


Get a taste of Las Vegas with funny money Black Jack, Craps, and Roulette. Enjoy the music of Night Wing and special appearances by Elvis himself! Between games, browse the silent auction in person or login online.


The $10 admission ticket to Vegas Night will provide an evening of entertainment plus a chance to win a $1,500 voucher toward a trip to Las Vegas through LaMacchia Travel in Kenosha. The lucky winner will be randomly drawn at 9 p.m. on the night of the event.


Those with a preference for poker are invited to come early for a Texas Hold’em Tournament. Registration for limited seats will begin at noon and the game starts at 2 p.m. Participants will receive 35,000 in chips for a $70 buy in and one $10 add on for 10,000 in chips will be available.
