What are the odds your good luck will prevail at this year's "Casino Night," presented by the DuPage County Historical Museum Foundation?

Take a chance and find out March 11 when this annual Las Vegas-style fundraising event is hosted for the first time at Arrowhead Golf Club in Wheaton.

 

There will be blackjack and craps tables, roulette, Texas Hold'em poker games, a money wheel, and a raffle.

A variety of donated items will be available for competitive bidding through a silent auction.

And guests also may enjoy an open bar and a selection of appetizers.

This night of "gambling" is a benefit for the DuPage County Historical Museum, a community treasure operated by the Wheaton Park District that was named to the National Register of Historic Places in 1981.

Each ticketholder will receive $50 in charity chips which can be redeemed for donated prize raffle tickets at the end of the evening.

"Casino Night" is marking its return after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic.

"Our supporters look forward to our Casino Night fundraiser each year," said David Thiel, DuPage County Historical Museum Foundation president. "The atmosphere is always festive and fun. This year, we'll be in new, elegant surroundings at the Arrowhead Golf Club so we can accommodate more guests. The evening promises to be a winner for our guests and for the DuPage County Historical Museum."
