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.

EVENT PHOTOS


Casino Night 2017 was a resounding success, thanks to our generous sponsors and our gregarious guests, who kept the excitement going with each flip of the card, roll of the dice, spin of the roulette wheel and Big Six—not to mention bidding during Live and Silent Auctions that covered the globe and a variety of products and services. From New Orleans cuisine, great guitar licks and vocals, magician sleights of hand to drinks on the house, the good times kept rolling all night long.
