The 5th annual Mac & Cheese luncheon marquee fundraiser for The Sharing Place was a tasty and inspirational SOLD OUT success.  A crowd of nearly 300 business and community members enjoyed another gourmet dish and our speaker Joe Roberts – The Skidrow CEO.

On May 14, Casino Rama hosted our diners in the elegant Nightingale room and hotel staff provided superb service under the leadership of Lisa Wannamaker (Hotel Sales & Catering Manager).  “Casino Rama Cares” was well demonstrated by providing the venue, food and staffing for our fundraiser. Thank you for your incredible support.   As well, thank you to The Burton Team of Investment Planning Counsel for sponsoring our speaker.

Proceeds from this event allow us to continue our food assistance, fresh produce & milk program, and Kids Zone brown bag lunch snacks program with a positive impact on the 1,400 average monthly visits by individuals and families.
