A local non-profit is hoping to win big -- to the tune of $7 million to be exact -- all to buy a new rescue helicopter.
HALO Flight needs another chopper to continue transferring critical patients in bad weather conditions, and in order to continue to do so, they are holding a Casino Night fundraiser event at the American Bank Center this Saturday.
"HALO is supported by the community," HALO Flight Executive Director Tom Klassen said. "We are the only non-profit helicopter medical service in South Texas, and through the support of the community, they become a partner in saving lives."
Admission to the event is a $100 donation. You will be able to enjoy casino games and live music by 80s cover band the Spazmatics. It will be held from 7 p.m.-midnight Saturday at the American Bank Center.
