Chamber ‘gambles’ on its fundraiser

FITZGERALD, Ga. — Vegas-style “gambling” is coming to the Colony City later this month with the Fitzgerald-Ben Hill County Chamber of Commerce 5th annual Casino Night night fundraiser.

The event is scheduled for 7 p.m. Aug. 24 at Turkey Creek Dining & Golf, 330 Ocilla Highway. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m., officials say.

All “gambling” will be done strictly with “funny money,” officials say. Tickets are $30, and include hors d’oeuvres, $1,000 worth of “money,” entertainment and the chance to win prizes.

Contact the chamber at (229) 423-9357 for tickets.
