A Night of Fun and Philanthropy

Themed “All In Casino Night,” the event offered attendees the opportunity to enjoy classic casino games such as Texas Hold ‘Em, Blackjack, Roulette, and Craps. But the evening was not just about accolades; it also featured a Whiskey + Wine Pull and raffle, with all proceeds benefiting Casa de Esperanza, an organization dedicated to providing a safe place for children in crisis due to abuse, neglect or the effects of HIV.
