Gala it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

Even if you don’t like to eat, dance, gamble or participate in live or silent auctions, there are other reasons to attend the Edmond Women’s Club’s Havana Nights Gala, like the fact that all proceeds will benefit local charities. Nevertheless, put on your cocktail attire and eat, dance, gamble and auction the night away at 6:30 p.m. Saturday at the Skirvin Hilton Hotel, 1 Park Ave. Tickets are $125 per person or $200 per couple. Visit ewc.org.
