IA/IL QUAD-CITIES– This would have been the eighth year for the Diamonds & Divas event benefitting Gilda’s Club but this year the event committee is rolling the dice with a new event – Gilda’s Club Casino Night.
"The secret of having a longstanding, successful event is knowing when you need to change it up a little," said Rosemary Ocar, Davenport, Chair of the Casino Night Committee. "We are excited to have an event where men can attend and much like our former Divas event we’re still glamorous and glitzy incorporating the fun and feel of Vegas; all for a good cause."
Gilda's Club Quad Cities provides programs free of charge to men, women, and children affected by cancer. Gilda's Club does not receive federal or state funding. It is funded through the caring people of the community.
The new Casino Night event will be held from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m., Friday, September 28 th, 2012, at Jumer’s Casino and Hotel, 777 Jumer Drive, Rock Island, IL, 61201. The cost is $55 per person, $100 per couple.
Blackjack, poker, live and silent auction, Vegas style entertainment, showgirls and much more will make this evening one you won’t forget.
"I think our loyal Diva audience will have a great time at our new event and we’re only increasing awareness and funds by inviting the men of the Quad Cities to join us," said Michele Stoos, Corporate Communications and Brand Manager of The Sedona Group and one of the event's organizers.
