huge thank you to everyone who made the 2nd annual Taste of Vegas casino night such a smashing success! Over 300 people were able to sample cuisine from the finest restaurants in O’Fallon, as well as sampling brews from Krey Distributing including their new Mang-O-Rita and RazBer-Rita drinks. Major Brands distributing brought in some of their top selling liquors, plus Mastermind Vodka made fabulous cosmos and chocolatinis. Guests were greeted with a tray and a stemless wine glass sponsored by Marshall Ford and entered the transformed gymnasium of the O’Fallon City Hall where Nick Calandro set the mood with a variety of Sinatra and Tony Bennett songs. After our party-goers were filled to the brim with delectable eats, the casino tables opened and guest really got into the Vegas spirit. While everyone took their turns on a variety of casino tables, some took a spin on the dance floor to the music of the Tom Christopher Band. Elvis made his grand entrance via spotlight and entertained everyone for the rest of the evening.

another succesful year for taste of vegas Not only were our attendees able to taste great food, sample from the best drinks available and dance the night away with a terrific band, they were also able to step into the photo booth and get silly with several props and funny accessories thanks to Trotter Photography. Cindy Wiltse with CPI Photography was also walking around capturing all of the casino action, and our beautiful guest dressed to the nines. After the casino tables closed, everyone traded in their winnings for prize tickets for a chance to win some of the fabulous prizes donated by several Chamber members. A separate raffle with prizes such as a flat screen TV and a set of tires were also sold. The casino committee was very excited to have had such a fantastic second year event go off so smoothly and couldn’t have done it without all of the sponsors, restaurants, volunteers, and chamber members. Thank you to everyone whose hard work made all of those goals a reality. Casino night proceeds benefit the mission of the O’Fallon Chamber of Commerce and allow the Chamber to keep their dues low for all types of businesses to participate.
