Vegas event coming to Somerset American Legion

Once again, the excitement of Vegas is coming to Somerset.

On Saturday, April 16, the Somerset Memorial Scholarship Fund is hosting its fifth annual Vegas Night Out at the Somerset American Legion at 7 p.m.

The event has been a big draw to help supplement donations toward the SMSF. Last year's event raised $3,100 which enabled the organization to award 26 scholarships to Somerset High School seniors for a total worth of $18,150.

Attendees pay $20 at the door and receive $10,000 in play money to use at the blackjack, craps and roulette tables. Tables are open from 7-10 p.m.; free finger foods will be available throughout the evening.

Following the games, there will be a "not-so-silent" auction featuring items such as gift certificates for Massage Envy, golf accessories from Edward Jones in Somerset and an Avon Beauty Supply gift basket. Nick Wishard, of Somerset, is also scheduled to perform a beatboxing set. Wishard is the 2010 Minnesota State Fair Talent contest winner.
