Saratoga Springs, N.Y. - Las Vegas’ gilded era comes to life on Thursday, October 11 at 7 p.m. as Saratoga Casino and Raceway hosts a first-ever “Vintage Vegas” fundraiser for Saratoga Performing Arts Center at its popular Vapor Night Club. Casino games including black jack tables and Vegas wheels, Sinatra-era music, classic cocktails and hors d’ouevres and dancing are all features of the event with proceeds to benefit classical programming at SPAC.

White, President & Executive Director at SPAC. “We are excited about this first-time partnership with Saratoga Casino and Raceway and about offering people the opportunity to support SPAC while enjoying a fabulous evening at one of Saratoga’s best night spots. It’s a win-win.”
Guests will be able to enjoy gaming at eight black jack tables and two Vegas wheels, complimentary vintage cocktails such as the classic manhattan and vodka gimlets, gourmet hors d’ouvres, 1960s-era music by Frank Sinatra and other members of the legendary “Rat Pack,” and dancing.
