It's a sure bet that a night of Vegas-style games will be both fun and worthwhile as the Inn Between hosts its first-ever Casino Night Fundraiser. The Inn Between helps the homeless through their end-of-life journeys by providing a caring and safe home for them during hospice. You can dine in style while playing blackjack, roulette, craps and Texas hold'em. There will be live music, a hypnosis show and a silent auction, as well as jewelry and other items crafted by the residents. Everyone wins in this humanitarian effort.

What could be more important during this election season than an understanding of the Declaration of Independence? Author Danielle Allen, director of the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University and the recipient of a MacArthur "genius" grant," lectures on Our Declaration, about which she has written a line-by-line commentary. "Allen writes movingly about growing up in a mixed-race African-American family whose dinner conversations often turned to the Declaration and its claim that 'all men are created equal,'" The New York Times wrote. Wildcat Theater, Weber State University, 3910 W. Campus Drive, Ogden, 801-626-6252, Friday, Nov. 11, 11:30 a.m., free, Weber.edu
