On Feb. 16, those looking to test their luck can gamble for a good, local cause—and one person can attend with a guest for free!
The annual Cool Cat Casino Night, run by Friends For the Dearborn Animal Shelter, returns to Dearborn Feb. 16—and we're giving away a pair of tickets.
The event includes chances to win cash payouts playing classics like Texas Hold ‘Em Poker, Black Jack, and Let It Ride, plus an open bar, buffet, live entertainment and door prizes. This year, the event will be Hawaiian-themed, and will include a taco bar donated by the Dearborn Heights Del Taco.
