Want to be a high roller for a good cause? The New Blossoms New Life Foundation is hosting a Casino Night at the Rainbow Gardens in Waldameer Park on Saturday.
The Casino Night runs from 6:30 to 11 p.m. Tickets at $15 at the door.
For card players, the event will feature Blackjack and Texas Hold’em. There will be Big 6 Wheels, a Nascar Sprint Cup pool and a Chinese Auction. Refreshments and beer will be served.
The Casino Night is the foundation’s largest event of the year. This year, foundation spokeswoman Kathleen Higgins said they hope to have 1,100 people in attendance.
The New Blossoms New Life Foundation provides financial and emotional support to couples struggling with infertility. To date, it has worked with 27 couples and supported the success of 10 babies and two adoptions. Higgins reports that five couples are currently pregnant.
The Casino Night also serves to spread awareness for the upcoming National Infertility Awareness Week from April 22 to 28. New Blossoms New Life reported that 1 in 8 people in the United States suffers from infertility, an estimated 35,000 in Erie County.
So spend your night at the blackjack table and help worthy couples start a family. Not a bad Saturday night out.
