It’s not too late to buy tickets for Casino Night party
It’s not too late to grab a ticket for this Saturday night’s “Speakeasy Casino” night to be held at the Grady Cultural Center.
The fundraiser will benefit a scholarship fund being established exclusively for Grady County students attending Thomas University in Thomasville. It gets started at 6:30 p.m.
Response from local sponsors and contributors to a silent auction to be held Saturday evening has been tremendous, according to Thomas University trustee and casino night committee chairman Charles Davis.
“I am extremely proud of how this community is supporting this effort. Because of this event and future ones, someone here in Grady County will be able to achieve their goal of obtaining a college education and will go on to make our community, state and nation a better place,” Davis said.
A few tickets are still available for sale. The tickets are $50 each and include dinner, two complimentary drink tickets and $10,000 in “fun money” for gambling.
Tickets are available at The Cairo Messenger or online at www.thomasu.edu.
“There are still some tickets available, and we hope to have a great crowd. It promises to be a fun-filled evening and you will be supporting a very worthy cause at the same time,” Davis said.
Sponsors underwriting the cost of the event include: Mr. and Mrs. K. Todd Butler, Mr. and Mrs. Bobby Johnson, Mr. and Mrs. John B. Wight Jr., The Cairo Messenger, Dr. and Mrs. Lumis Brown, Capital City Bank, Mr. and Mrs. Kevin S.
