A night of Wild West fun at Sauk

Published: Saturday, Jan. 18, 2014 1:15 a.m. CST

DIXON – Round up the gang for Sauk Valley College Foundation’s Wild West Casino Fest from 5 to 11 p.m. today at the college.

This year, guests are in for a treat as the college’s East Mall, second floor and cafeteria will transform into a night of Wild West fun, including a chuck wagon, mini-slot corral, saloons, gold mine and jail. Dress your cowboy best and dust off your boots for this fundraiser.

The night of entertainment will include casino-style games (blackjack, craps, roulette, poker, etc.) where guests will earn “gaming chips” (of no monetary value) for an opportunity to win big prizes later in the event. Guests do not have to be skilled gamers.

There will be professional dealers at all tables to keep everyone challenged.

A silent auction will feature items and gift baskets donated by local businesses and organizations. Guests also can enjoy a caricature artist, photo booth and more. All proceeds go toward SVCC scholarships and student needs.

Tickets are $35 and include $50 in “gaming chips,” a light cowboy buffet and dessert, and two drink tickets. This event is for ages 21 and older. Purchases can be made online at svcc.edu, by calling 815-835-6345, or at the door tonight.

Yes. Sterling and Dixon have had bans for years. It’s time for Rock Falls to impose a ban.
No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
