VAN WERT, Ohio - Van Wert Hospital's annual Casino Night Fundraising Event returns this Friday, April 27 to the Van Wert Elks Lodge. This important event raises much needed funds to support the Grand Lake Regional Cancer Center as well as Van Wert Hospital.

The evening begins with doors and tables opening at 7 p.m. Two exciting silent auctions are scheduled to include a wide variety of generously donated baskets, professional sporting event tickets, jewelry and a host of other fine items. Fun includes a 50/50 drawing, door prizes, and raffles (including one for a 42" Vizio flat screen television). Games for the evening include roulette, craps, blackjack, slot machines and poker.

Tickets are $30 each or 2 for $50. Tickets can be purchased by e-mailing info@vanwertcountyhospital.org or by visiting the cashier's window at the Van Wert Hospital. Tickets include admission, $10 in play money, a door prize ticket, and gourmet appetizers throughout the night along with cash bar.

Great food, great company, great games/raffles and great silent auctions - do not miss out! And remember, up to 50 percent of "play money" winnings can be used towards purchases from the auctions.

Please join us on April 27 at 7 p.m. at the Van Wert Elks, Van Wert Decatur Road, just west of Marsh Supermarket.

Casino Night is a unique opportunity to positively impact cancer programs in the local community as well as support Van Wert Hospital. Please support with attendance at the event. Raising money has never been more fun!
