Cancer Foundation League Gala
It would have been hard to spot James Bond in the crowd of tuxedo-clad men and their beautifully gowned ladies, as the West Monroe Convention Center transformed into the Casino Royale for the annual Cancer Foundation League event. More than 400 people turned out for the festivities, which included live music and a lavish buffet prepared by the skilled chefs at the convention center.
But the stars of the night were the table games. For a small fee, patrons were encouraged to roll the dice, hit again in chasing 21, or bet on Black at the table games. For some brave souls, the poker tables claimed their hearts—and hopefully a healthy part of their pocket books.
It was all in good fun as these merry gamblers were competing not for cash or fame, but for prizes and bragging rights. All proceeds from the Night at the Casino Royale benefit the Cancer Foundation League’s efforts to aid cancer patients in the region.
