YLD to Present New Casino Night & Annual Fundraiser, May 14

Play exciting games of poker, blackjack, craps and roulette at the brand-new Casino Night and Annual Fundraiser presented by the Young Lawyers Division for the benefit of the Philadelphia Bar Foundation. The event takes place May 14 at the Radisson Plaza-Warwick Hotel from 7-10:30 p.m. and also features an open bar, a generous dinner buffet, a DJ, and a big ticket raffle.

Each Casino Night attendee will get $200 worth of chips to use at 7 Blackjack tables, 3 poker tables, 2 craps tables and a double roulette table. Additional chips will be available for purchase at the event. Chips can be exchanged for raffle tickets toward a host of items to be auctioned off at the event. Registration is $75 per person; $135 for groups of two.

All proceeds benefit the Philadelphia Bar Foundation, which is dedicated to promoting access to justice for all people, particularly those struggling with poverty, abuse and discrimination. Since 2006, the YLD’s annual fundraiser – which traditionally featured a renowned comic and a silent auction – has raised more than $140,000 for the Foundation.
