CasinoEvil Fundraiser

CasinoEvilThe CasinoEvil fundraiser is back! Save the date: April 8, 2017 from 6-11 pm.

CasinoEvil is a rip-roaring celebration of the Roaring Twenties with a night of food, liquid spirits and games of chance, all as a fundraiser to benefit the Lycoming County Historical Society and Preservation Williamsport.

CasinoEvil’s first event, in 2016, was a well attended event which brought out the best in 1920’s attire: Sleeveless and shapeless dresses, slip gowns accented with beading, sequins and fringe. Feathers, diamond tiaras, headbands, silk shawls, long pearl necklaces, and gold arm bangles were all on display on the women. The men wore dinner jackets, striped suits, flashy neckties and homburg hats. In all, a rather flashy crowd.

CasinoEvilThe gamers seemed to be doing quite well, if the number and loudness of the shrieks of delight from those at the tables, was any indication. The winners then cashed out, got tickets and bid for prizes, after the games ended. A number of prize baskets filled with gift certificates, liquid refreshment, vintage coins and bills, coffee and nuts, sports equipment, a framed CasinoEvil poster, limited edition plates depicting the Russell Inn, and many more prizes were donated to go to the successful bidder.

The attendees treated themselves to an open bar with liquor, beer and wine, as well as popcorn, hors d’oeuvres, and desserts.

Hold the date to attend the upcoming CasinoEvil event. Ticket details are coming soon.
