Hanover Rotary 14th Annual Casino Night was a huge success


HANOVER TOWNSHIP — The Hanover Rotary held its popular 14th Annual Casino Night on January 25 at the American Legion in Whippany.  A buffet dinner was served before the gambling started and drinks were served throughout the night. Professional dealers and gaming tables were brought in to create a “real life” gaming experience. Participants played Blackjack, Roulette, Three Card Poker, and Craps. Near the end of the night they cashed in their winnings to buy tricky tray tickets. There were over 50 baskets to choose from.

All the proceeds will go to fund Hanover Rotary projects both locally and around world.  Hanover Rotary sponsors a Hanover Little League Team, gives dictionaries to all third-grade students in Hanover and East Hanover, supplies emergency dialers to seniors in the surrounding area, and grants two vocational scholarships to Whippany Park and Hanover Park High Schools. Globally, Hanover Rotary supports Rotary International to help eradicate Polio. They also support Gift of Life that provides life-saving open-heart surgeries to children in third world countries and ShelterBox that provides people with shelter and supplies to devastated communities.

Hanover Rotary’s next event is their annual Duck Race and Family Picnic at Malapardis Pond on Saturday, June 6. Rubber ducks will race across the pond to win one of approximately 50 prizes for their ticket holder.  The Family Picnic festivities include music, balloons, a clown, horse and cart rides, plus free hot dogs and ice cream for the kids.
