Casino Night


RFTC’s Casino Night 2018, on 7th September at the Ritz Carlton, will be a night in New Orleans, with live jazz and blues, popular cocktails, beer, wine, and spicy New Orleans cuisine prepared by chef Sohan Ahluwalia of Bourbon Street–Louisiana Kitchen fame.

Join us for an evening in New Orleans — food, drinks, music, live gaming, auctions, entertainment, and loads of fun. And all for a worthy cause. Come … let the good times roll.

All proceeds raised will go towards the Foundation’s community outreach programs including The Lemon Project seminars and publication of PiNK, our quarterly bilingual magazine for women’s health. Our programs are developed and carried out free-of-charge to improve the QOL (Quality of Life) of breast cancer patients and survivors, as well as to raise greater awareness in Japan – both in the Japanese speaking and international communities.

THANK YOU FOR JOINING US AT CASINO NIGHT 2018. WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEE YOU AGAIN NEXT YEAR!
