The 2015 Rush Associates Board Casino Night was the board’s most successful yet in eight years of hosting the event.
On June 12, 2015, more than 500 people gathered at the Montgomery Club in River North to support the Road Home Program: The Center for Veterans and Their Families at Rush. The event raised more than $270,000 to support research, care and social services at Rush, including mental health care and counseling for veterans and their families. The event’s net proceeds (33 percent more than last year) and attendance (29 percent more than last year), both represent all-time highs for Casino Night.
Casino Night reached another all-time high in terms of corporate sponsorships and outright donations, raising $228,800 at this year’s event — a 24 percent increase from the 2014 Casino Night totals, which were the previous high-water mark. Casino Night 2015 was the first Rush initiative to count its funds toward the impressive three-year, $15-million challenge grant awarded to Rush by the Wounded Warrior Project.
The next Casino Night will be held on May 6, 2016 at Revel Fulton Market in Chicago. Join us for an evening of great food, live music and a silent auction.
