October: Changing Seasons

Casino Night Recap

Bienvenidos’ Casino Night – Let the Good Times Roll – was on September 20th in the fabulous Chinese Theatre Ballroom -the site of countless Hollywood premieres. Two hundred friends of Bienvenidos came out to play casino games and feast on a Chinese themed dinner all to raise funds for the children and families Bienvenidos helps. Everyone was bidding on the auction items – from jewels to travel adventures, and restaurant dinners and more. Partying like Hollywood’s brightest stars, almost $50,000 was raised.
