LACASA Center’s annual Denim & Diamonds fundraising event will bring the Wild West to Howell next month.
Set for Saturday, September 16, from 5 to 10 p.m. at the Triple Diamonds Alpaca Ranch, the jeans-preferred event will include gambling, dinner, live music, dancing and a grand finale fireworks display.
Advance registration is required for this event, which features a bourbon tasting bar, alpaca photo ops, Silver Star Saloon and cigar bar, savory barbeque dinner, and music from award-winning country artist Kari Holmes.
Guests can also play casino games for a chance to win great prizes at the Lady Luck Raffle. Or, they can purchase tickets to go Diamond Mining where everyone wins something—a gemstone, sparkling cubic zirconia, or the ultimate prize, which is a $6,500 diamond from Cooper & Binkley Jewelers.
Denim & Diamonds tickets are $125, and include parking, hearty dinner, beer & wine, gambling loot starter kit, games, prizes, all-night-long entertainment, and a grand finale fireworks display. Purchase tickets online at lacasacenter.org/diamonds-23/ or in person at LACASA Center. Advance reservations are required by Wednesday, September 6.
Diamond Mine tickets are available at Cooper & Binkley Jewelers in Brighton or at LACASA Center in Howell. The odds are great for this raffle, with only 100 tickets being sold at $100 per ticket. Tickets can be purchased from now through noon on Friday, Sept. 15, at Cooper & Binkley Jewelers or LACASA Center. Ticket holders do not have be present to win, although that’s where the fun lies. The diamond winner will be announced at the end of the night on Sept. 16, 2023, at Triple Diamonds Alpaca Ranch in Howell.
All proceeds from Denim & Diamonds and the Diamond Mine raffle stay local and benefit victims of child abuse and domestic and sexual violence from the community.
