From Indy contributor Rebekah L. Cowell:
Listen up high rollers, times are a-changin' in Chatham County. The County's no longer dry and word has it the casino's coming to town. Tonight, Bynum Front Porch hosts its second annual casino night, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Now before the righteous citizens of Pittsboro decide it's time for an ole timey revival, remember that gambling funds go to help the county's kids. All money raised will fund scholarships and programming for two nonprofit community organizations, the Bynum Front Porch,and Chatham Arts Council.
Last year's funds helped send two local young people to college, says John Winecker, event organizer and Chatham County schoolteacher.
