Wilton Library Association (WLA) is hosting a special Casino Night Fundraiser at the library on the evening of Saturday, Oct. 15 from 6:30-10:30 p.m. All adults age 21 and older are invited to be part of the action. During the event, the library’s open spaces will be transformed with lights, sounds, and professional gambling tables for a Saturday night to remember.
“We are so excited to host our first-ever Casino Night fundraiser, bringing all of the glitz and glamour of Vegas right to Wilton Library,” said Wilton Library Executive Director Caroline Mandler. “This fun evening is a wonderful opportunity to see old friends, make new friends, and enjoy a special night out in Wilton, all for a great cause. All of the proceeds from this fundraiser will go directly to supporting our incredible collections, programs, and services.”
“This is our first in-person fundraising event in three years, and we could not be more thrilled,” said Jennifer Longmire, WLA Trustee and Development Committee Chair. “We’re looking forward to seeing many of our dedicated supporters and loyal friends at the event. We also encourage new Wilton residents to attend, since this is a great opportunity to connect with new people. Most of all, we want to thank all of our sponsors. Their generosity and support have made this event possible.”
At the event, guests will be treated to exciting games, an open bar, delicious hors d’oeuvres, “fun money” for gaming, and prizes for the top winners.
