If you love the sound of poker chips, laughter, and good times for a great cause, you should probably attend the Quality of Life Casino Night, Tuesday, April 12 at the Big Horn Resort.

The Quality of Life Casino Night is organized by the Billings Association of Realtors. Event co-chairs Tim Mascarena and Mikayla Kovash stopped by our studios today (4/6) to share details (listen to the interview below). Kovash said the Quality of Life events have raised a lot of money for local non-profits over the years and they expect to hit the one million dollar donation milestone this year. Different charities are selected each year.
