ELLINWOOD – The Kansas Sidewinders Motorcycle Club will hold it’s annual casino night to benefit United Way of Central Kansas from 7-10 p.m. Saturday at the group’s clubhouse,  21 N. Main in Ellinwood.
The entry fee is a suggested donation of $20 at the door. This buys “$10,000” in chips or two tickets for a prize drawing.
Prizes include a 19-inch flat-screen television, a beef bundle, $200 in cash and more. There will also be casino games and a silent auction. Food and beverages will be available.
The goal for the 2012 UWCK campaign is $235,000, up from last year’s target of $225,000, and the theme is Live United. Heading up the are co-chairs Marsha and Roy Westoff of Great Bend and Tama Hanson of Larned, along with new board members Jane Fox of Larned and Becca Maxwell of Ellinwood. 
Julie Bugner-Smith, UWCK executive director, said 99 percent of what is raised stays in communities in Barton and Pawnee counties. These funds go to help the 19 agencies served by UWCK.
This is second year for UWCK and the 49th campaign for Barton County.
