On the evening of October 13th, the Autism Society of Greater Akron (ASGA) hosted their second annual Casino Night fundraiser at The Trailhead at Cascade Lofts. The speakeasy-themed event benefited ASGA’s Swimming with Autism water safety program, along with other autism inclusive initiatives in the Greater Akron community.
Donors tested their luck at Blackjack, Craps, Roulette, and Texas Hold ‘Em, and won raffle prizes. This year’s silent auction offered several exciting items such as a cottage in Old Florida, a Goodyear Blimp ride, original art work from an artist with autism, a condo in Hilton Head, and other themed baskets of local events and experiences.
Casino Night 2018 was presented by the FirstEnergy Foundation. Other sponsors included Apple Growth Partners as a “King” Sponsor, CMIT Solutions as a “Queen” Sponsor, Brennan Manna Diamond as a “Jack” Sponsor, and American Printing Inc. as an in-kind donor.
