Lexington Education Foundation planning “Lex Vegas” night

The Lexington Education Foundation is planning a fund-raising casino-themed night as its annual Celebration for Education. The event, called Lex Vegas, will feature casino-style gambling, dancing, food, and live and silent auctions. It will take place May 3 at the Double Tree Bedford Glen Hotel in Bedford. Attendees will be able to try their hand at blackjack, craps tables, roulette wheels, and Texas hold ’em, although the event is for fund-raising and entertainment only, and no cash will be awarded or won. The Lexington Education Foundation is a nonprofit founded in 1989 to fund curriculum and technological innovations at the Lexington public schools. Since that time, it has awarded more than $4 million in grants to the schools. Anyone interested in volunteering to plan the event or donate auction items should contact Jean Kurien in the Lexington Education Foundation office at 781-372-3288.
