What happens in Vegas doesn’t always have to stay in Vegas. Sometimes it makes its way closer to home.

The Arts Council will hold its first Red Carpet Gala Casino Night fundraiser at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 23, at The Smithgall Arts Center, 331 Spring St.

The event includes Las Vegas-style casino games with live dealers, cabaret performances, gourmet foods and drinks, live and silent auctions, a raffle and prizes. Visitors can deck out in their best evening wear, enjoy complimentary valet service and strut down the red carpet.

Live performances will feature Katie Deal, daughter of Gov. Nathan Deal, who will offer a sneak peak at her latest show on national tour, “Today, Tomorrow & Forever: A Tribute to Patsy Cline.”

Other performers include Jim Noe, a singer known for his portrayal of Rat Pack members and Elvis Presley, and magician and master of ceremonies Bill Clary.

Auction items will include entertainment packages, luxury treatments, artwork, golf packages and vacations, as well as a $5,000 diamond. In addition, the Arts Council will auction a 1956 Bentley currently on view at The Smithgall Arts Center.

Tickets include $5,000 in play money per person, plus heavy hors d’oeuvres. A cash bar also will be offered.

Tickets are $75 per person, $125 per couple. To purchase, call 770-534-2787 or visit
