The Massac County Drug Awareness Coalition and the Massac County United Way were recently chosen to benefit from ticket sales for the annual Harrah’s Metropolis New Year’s Eve Bash. Each charity was given pre-sale tickets for which they were able to keep the full proceeds that sold. Tickets were also sold at the door which were divided in half and given to each charity as well.
Chad Lewis, Advertising & Public Relations Specialist says “This year we wanted to draw more of a local crowd being that New Year’s Eve landed on a Tuesday night. Not a lot of people like to travel far from home, especially on this particular night. What better way to ring in 2014 than to celebrate in your hometown with your close friends, listening to a local band, all while giving back to two local charities?
These two charities were able to raise a grand total of $5845 with MCDAC receiving $2625 and Massac County United Way receiving $3220.
