SRWC hosting Black Squirrel Bingo/Vegas Night Friday

Erin Vanjo

This year, the Student Recreation and Wellness Center is combining its annual Vegas Night and its Black Squirrel Bingo into one event.

The event will take place Friday at the SRWC and is free to all students. The 37 casino games will begin at 6 p.m., followed by a Mike Polk comedy show at 9 p.m. and bingo at 10 p.m.

Though actual money will not be used, students who play the casino games will increase their odds of winning big prizes during bingo later in the evening. The more “money” students win, the more bingo cards they can buy.

Prizes include an Apple iPad, a year of free rent at Hickory Mills Apartments and free Little Caesars pizza for a semester.

“There are around $10,000 worth of prizes and there will be 10 winners,” said David Lawson, the special events supervisor. “This is what is going to draw people to this event.”
