2013 Casino Gala

It was our pleasure to hold our 19th fundraising Casino Gala on Saturday, November 23, 2013 at the beautiful Manor Country Club in Rockville, Maryland.
 
This annual event is held in honor of all of the children who have fought or have a brain tumor diagnosis. The evening included many activities: buffet dinner, casino games, silent auction, live music and dancing, and an open-bar. The casino was packed with supporters playing blackjack and craps. The auction included great items and many drew competitive bids.
 
Special thanks to all of our event supporters and sponsors: Whittle Physical Therapy, Herson’s Honda, Kelley Bula Memorial Scholarship, several dedicated anonymous Hero Sponsors.
 
This year, our musical entertainment was provided by New York group, The Giant Flying Turtles. We are deeply appreciative of the dedicated efforts of our longstanding volunteers and new volunteers. Each year, our Casino dealers, Anne Gallagher (flowers), Owen Lyon, Yvonne and Michael Soghomonian, and Board members volunteer their time to make the evening a great success. Special thanks to return volunteers Mandy Bell, Tricia Whittles and Jillian Vardy; and this year’s support efforts from Kathleen Bula.
 
Our November 22, 2014 Gala marks our 20th year of funding scientific and/or clinical research, providing educational materials and conferences or Family Retreat Days for families. The event will again be held at the exquisite Manor Country Club. We look forward to seeing our regular event supporters and new supporters this year. If you know in advance that you plan to attend let us know ahead.

Thanks to Our Sponsors
