Casino night fundraiser to support Friends of Lorenzo

— The second annual Casino Night fundraiser to benefit the Friends of Lorenzo will be held Friday, March 8 at the Lincklaen House.

Enjoy drinks and appetizers while trying a hand at blackjack, craps, roulette, Texas hold 'em and a money wheel — no prior playing experience necessary. Attendees will receive “fun” chips to play with, which may be traded in at the end of the event for raffle tickets and the chance to win locally-donated prizes.

All profits from the evening go to supporting the efforts and goals of the Friends of Lorenzo, a non-profit group interested in preserving and protecting the Lorenzo mansion and 87 acres of historic grounds.

The Friends, in concert with New York state, supplement on-going programs, interpret the site to the public, underwrite restoration projects and assist financially to procure objects for the Mansion. In addition, the Friends support Lorenzo research and publication projects, as well as enhance both educational and cultural experiences at the site.

Over the last decade, an average of 45,000 visited Lorenzo annually to take advantage of the many educational programs and activities made possible by the Friends and New York state.

The cost for the evening is $75 per person, and admission includes a drink token, chips (redeemable for raffle tickets to win prizes) and hors d’oeuvres. Sponsorship opportunities are still available.

RSVP no later than March 1. Make checks payable to Friends of Lorenzo and mail to: Kate Schwartz, 3868 Rippleton Road, Cazenovia, NY 13035.
