Whitney residents joined with over 250 attendees from Hill County and throughout the state to raise money for local foster children when the Hill County Child Protective Services Board held its casino night fund-raiser Saturday night, July 14, at the HILCO Civic and Events Center in Itasca. The event was a huge success, according to board members, and funds raised will help support children who have been victims of abuse and neglect in Hill County.
