The Breckenridge Fine Arts Center will host its annual Casino Night fundraiser next weekend, offering a chance for the community to enjoy an evening of charity gaming, food and drink, and a variety of prizes.

The doors will open at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 30, and the casino-style games will be open from 7 to 9:30 p.m. Then, the live auction and raffle prize drawings will begin.

“Everybody is welcome,” said Shalon Wilson, director of the BFAC. “It’s just a really fun night of charity gambling.”

Tickets cost $35 each and may be purchased in advance or at the door. Admission will include food, complimentary drinks, two raffle tickets, and $1,000 worth of casino chips. The casino chips can be used to play the games, and the winnings cashed in for raffle tickets. The event will be catered by The Rusty Rooster.

The casino-style games will include slot machines, a roulette wheel, and tables for blackjack, craps and poker, including Texas Hold ’Em, Three Card Poker and Let It Ride.

“We have a massive amount of donations from, pretty much, every business in this community,” Wilson said.

Some of the prizes include a Louis Vuitton handbag, Kate Spade handbag, Christian Dior sunglasses, a diamond necklace, Yeti coolers, floral arrangements, a Pioneer Woman gift basket, Texas Rangers tickets, drag racing tickets, taxidermy services, a massage, and much more. Several of the big-ticket items will be auctioned off, including a $3,500 exotic hunt.

“I really want to stress this…everybody is welcome,” Wilson said. “Every person in this community can benefit from this place, and we want everybody to be involved and to feel like this is their place, too. This is a community center for people to come and enjoy. We want our community to feel at home here and have a lot of fun.”

The Breckenridge Fine Arts Center is located at 207 N. Breckenridge Ave. and is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. For more information, call the BFAC at 254-559-6602.
