On Saturday, November 2nd, the Wort Hotel was transformed back to the lawless times of gambling throughout the hotel and gun slingers roamed the halls along with saloon girls. The costume-themed Casino Night benefits the local Rotary Club of Jackson Hole Foundation to raise money for local student scholarships. Gamblers quenched their thirst with fun themed-cocktails and wine and will dine on an array of appetizers and buffets all donated by Nicholas & Company Inc., Food Service.
There was a roulette table, black jack tables, and a craps table found throughout the bar and grill. All guests received fun money to gamble with and enjoyed trying their luck at one of the many games. In addition to food, drinks, gambling and live music, we hosted a live auction, silent auction, door prizes and raffle Items. In the bar, The Linford Duo and Jackson 6 provided musical entertainment until the late hours of the night.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to our 4th annual Casino Night. Because of everyone's selfless contributions, we have raised $280,000 for local Rotary scholarships. The kids in our community will get an amazing opportunity to further and enhance their education. We are incredibly humbled and hope next year is just as successful.
We would like to say an additional 'thank you' to all of our sponsors for their incredible generosity. Without you, this event would not be a success.
