CasinoEvil III to be held at Farrington Place

WILLIAMSPORT — CasinoEvil III, a night of food, spirits and chance, will be held at Farrington Place, 416 W. Third St., Saturday, April 28 from 6 to 11 p.m.

The fundraiser will benefit the Lycoming County Historical Society.

Suggesting the Prohibition Era of United States history, the venue will recreate a speakeasy of the 1920s. Guests are encouraged to come in costume of the period, but it is not required. Equipped with an open bar of liquor, wine and beer, a popcorn bar, catered hors d’oeuvres, and oyster shuck-off, gaming, and the opportunity to win some wonderful raffle prizes, guests are sure to enjoy the evening while mingling with gangsters, flappers and the ghost of Prince Farrington, the “Robin Hood” of Lycoming County. Prince Farrington was known as a bootlegger during Prohibition, supplying the surrounding era with moonshine and other spirits produced in and around the county.

Guy Graybill, who has written two books on the Prince, will be available to autograph books.

Adding to the festivities of the evening will be an opportunity to learn the Charleston from dancemasters Sandy and Frank Hartzell. A Charleston contest will follow, and the best couple will be rewarded with a prize. As well, the best costumes for a male and a female will garner a prize.

Tickets are priced at $60 per person with a $10 discount for members of the Lycoming County Historical Society. Tickets are available at the historical society, 858 W. Fourth St., during operational hours (Tuesdays through Fridays 9:30 a.m.-4 p.m. and Saturdays 11 a.m.-4 p.m.). Tickets are also available from board members.
