Quincy Catholic Charities hosts Casino Night fund raiser

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Folks didn't have to go to Las Vegas or Atlantic City for a night of casino-style games.

Quincy Catholic Charities hosted a "Casino Night".

Proceeds went to support all of their operations.

Partygoers enjoyed blackjack, craps, roulette and horse racing. No one gambled real money - just Monopoly style *play* money. "I think it's just fun, and it's an opportunity for people who don't know how to play the games because it's fake money - you don't have to run the risk of losing your own money, so you can practice craps if you've never played, or roulette," says organizer Jackie Bruns.

This is the first year they've had horse races.

They used to have mouse races, but they say they stopped doing that because they've had some near-mouse escapes.
