Gambling isn't legal in Florida, but if you consider yourself something of a card shark, you won't have to go to Vegas to flip the chips this weekend.

DoveCote, the French brasserie that's created quite a stir in the Bank of America building downtown, is hosting a philanthropic Casino Night fundraiser this Saturday, April 29, to raise money for iDignity.

The event will begin at 7:30 p.m. and your $50 ticket will net you appetizers, two drink vouchers and 1,000 in casino chips. There will be a silent auction (featuring plenty of DoveCote gift cards, wine baskets, and more, we imagine) and raffle prizes throughout the night. It's likely you won't go home empty-handed, and certainly not empty-stomach'd.

All proceeds from the evening will go to iDignity, an organization that helps disadvantaged Central Florida residents overcome the challenges of obtaining personal identification documents crucial to self-sufficiency.
