The Watertown Police will put on a Casino Night for a good cause this fall, with the proceeds going to a charity that helps the families of children fighting cancer.
On Friday, Sept. 16, 2016 from 7 p.m. to midnight, a Casino Night will be held at American Legion Post 440 in Newton. Proceeds benefit Cops for Kids with Cancer, which provides thousands of dollars to families to help pay for the costs that insurance does not cover when a child undergoes cancer treatment.
Last year, a the charity presented a Watertown family with a $5,000 check to help them out as their son underwent treatment for a rare form of leukemia.
The evening features 3 card poker, blackjack, roulette and craps. For $25, attendees will receive $500 in play chips and for the donation they can also enjoy appetizers. There will also be raffles, prizes, an auction and a DJ.
The Casino Night is sponsored by the Watertown Police Department, the Police Supervisors Association, the Police Patrolman’s Union and Lilly’s Bakery.
Tickets can be purchased at the Watertown Police Station, 552 Main St., or Lilly’s Bakery, 71 Arlington St., Watertown. Cash or check will be accepted. Checks should be made to “Friends of the Watertown Police.”
