Round she goes: The Williamstown Rotary Club will hold its annual Casino Fun Night at the Williams Inn tonight from 7 to 10 p.m. There will be blackjack and roulette tables and various wheels of chance. At the end of the evening, those who have been lucky can vie for prizes from local businesses, including theater and movie tickets, gift baskets and maple syrup. Admission is $20 and will provide a set of chips (more can be purchased). In addition to the games of chance, the evening will feature a silent auction of such items as jewelry and vacations, a board of gift certificates, where a $20 contribution will guarantee a gift certificate for at least $25 and perhaps up to $50, and a 50/50 cash raffle. Proceeds will benefit the Berkshire Food Project and scholarships for local students.
