What's on your calendar for next Saturday, January 23? Nothing, you say? Well, we've got plans for you.

St. Patrick's Day might seem like a long time away, but the Lawrence St. Patrick's Day Parade Committee is already busy planning events to raise money for this year's chosen charities. Yes, there's a parade, but there's also loads of other events that start this month. 

Next Saturday night is the first fundraiser: Casino Night! Here's the details:

  • Saturday, January 23
  • Eagles Lodge, 1803 W 6th Street
  • 7 pm to 10 pm
  • $5 for 50 chips

A BBQ buffet will be open from 6 pm to 8 pm for the low cost of $10.00.

And of course there's prizes! Businesses and individuals from all over Lawrence and Kansas City donate tons of great prizes to the St. Patrick's Day committee every year.

If you're looking for something fun to do on Saturday, consider Casino Night. You'll be helping out a great Lawrence tradition raise money for several great local charities that assist children. Read about them here
