Casino Night at Ronald McDonald House

Friday, March 10 from 6:30 to 10:30 pm
1 Wall Street Court

We would like to invite you to a most memorable evening with Children’s Happy Faces Foundation at our signature Casino Night. Location will again be at our fine host Peter Vulai’s classic first-rate establishment Fino Wall Street Ristorante.

This year’s fun includes a professional casino set-up with the return of a “Goldman Special” Texas Hold’em Tournament, Blackjack tables, Roulette Wheel plus a Craps table with the chance to win great prizes, raffles, silent and live auctions. The event opens at 6:30pm with fine Fino Italian pass-around feast, a LIVE Jazz Quartet, chair massages provided by Oasis Day Spa, and Fur Show by “Not Just Mink.”

Our previous events held at Fino’s continue to be the talk around town and why wouldn’t they be, especially when one can do good even while we enjoy a casino atmosphere, feast on scrumptious Italian food on Wall St., drink fine wine while listening to Live Jazz and just enjoying the overall scenery. We therefore return with a vengeance and the desire to yet again please our guests while we make money for the House.

Please do not miss out on the fun!!! We have limited space and do expect an early sell-out, so we encourage you to act timely and reserve your tickets. Corporate sponsorships are always welcomed with creative exposure opportunities available.
