2021 Casino Night
On Friday, November 5th, the Brennan Rehabilitation Foundation held a successful Casino Night raising money for it’s Double Down on Disabilities Fund.
Approximately 100 individuals enjoyed cocktails and hor d’oevers at Sunset Ridge Country Club. People were entertained with five black jacket tables, one craps table, one poker table and a golf simulator.
In addition to participating in casino games, patrons also had the opportunity to enter two golf contests. One was a par 3 contest for the opportunity to win $10,500. The second was a golf raffle for a chance to win a Ferrari Roma provided by Mancuso Ferrari worth $250,000. Spoiler alert! The raffle winner did not win the Ferrari this year, but did receive a Ferrari performance watch from Mancuso as a conciliation prize.
Everyone enjoyed gambling for three hours. Individual winners use their casino winnings to bid on prizes obtained from ABT Electronics. The event was sponsored by Lake Forest Bank and Trust and Hill and Stone Insurance. Approximately, 10,000 dollars were raised during the evening.
A video was displayed during the evening describing the foundation and its mission. The video was produced by Lucy Partington and is available for viewing below.
