Biltmore was rocking on Saturday night as Barrington Junior Women’s Club hosted their annual casino night, “Luck Be a Lady”

More than 200 people were greeted by Mad Men-themed welcome drinks and a Doorway Raffle item, generously donated by M.J. Miller & Co.

Gaming and giving commenced with super silent and silent auction, in the midst of Blackjack, Roulette, and Craps tables.  For those who weren’t trying their hand at the tables, the hot Chicago band, Greenlight, kept the party rocking all night long.

This event helps BJWC award grants to local 501c3 organizations and scholarships to Barrington High School seniors. This year, BJWC’s fundraising focus is supporting a portable Safety Town program, Safety Town Around Town, which will be launched at Sunny Hill later this summer.

The event could not happen without the many talented BJWC Members, especially Co-Chairs Stephanie Jameson and Alli Swingruber, their committee, and the generous donors and sponsor.  A complete list of our Luck be a Lady sponsors can be found below.
