Boys & Girls Clubs of Lincoln/Lancaster County (BGC) will be hosting their annual Casino Night fundraiser on Friday, April 22 from 7-10:30 p.m. at the Lincoln Children’s Zoo, 1222 S. 27th St.
This year, BGC celebrates its 15th anniversary in Lincoln. The fundraiser is the first of many celebrations planned to celebrate the event.
Attendees will find food and drink, live entertainment, casino games, raffles and more. Local celebrity stockists will include Darin Erstad, Carol Frost, Nancy Metcalf, Ronnie Green and many more.
“I’m thrilled to lead an organization that not only prepares young people for the jobs of the future, but for jobs that don’t even exist yet,” says Executive Director Kimberly Goins. “Our programming focuses on real solutions that are needed across the state. An investment in Boys and Girls Clubs is a direct investment in the growth and sustainability of the state. Our true value proposition is that we not only prioritize the social needs of our young people, but also, and most importantly, their economic future.
