Nearly 150 of Turning Point’s friends and supporters enjoyed all the trappings of a Las Vegas Casino on November 14, 2008 at the agency’s Casino Night Benefit Gala.
Guests took advantage of 14 gaming tables ranging from Blackjack to Roulette to Texas Hold ‘Em and more. There were exciting gambling prizes, a live auction and a 50-50 raffle. The elegant Montclair Golf Club setting enhanced the evening.
Turning Point’s Board of Trustees and staff are truly grateful to our generous supporters for making the evening such a succes. The proceeds will help ensure that New Jersey’s neediest residents can find and remain on the road to sobriety and recovery.
