Episode Recap

When Philip's Country Club has a Monte Carlo night, Will has a lucky streak. Not only is he hitting it big at the tables but also wins the $1,000.00 raffle, which, according to tradition, he is supposed to donate to the LAPC. Will is against donating. Philip is disappointed that Will has not given the money back and tells Will to do so. The next day at the club, people think the Bankses are poor and start to give them charity. When Philip inquires about why, he is told that Will never gave the check back. Later, he discovers that his nephew donated the money to his shoeshiner and friend Ramon to help pay his way to basketball camp. Philip, secretly impressed with Will's generosity, decides to donate $1,000 of his own to the LAPC.
