Guests from all over the Chicagoland area and surrounding suburbs gathered for a night of glamour as the red carpet rolled out for the KoenigRubloff Cares Foundation Fundraiser A Night in Monte Carlo. Everyone who came out to support KRCF helped to raise funds for two beneficiaries of the foundation: Habitat for Humanity Chicagoland and Sunshine Kids Foundation.
Guests were excited for a fun evening and posed with friends along the red carpet while enjoying beverages courtesy of Cutwater Spirits and MillerCoors. As the drinks were flowing guests also enjoyed a full Gibsons dinner buffet and passed appetizers including grilled lollipop lamb chops, mini crab cakes, brie tart, and herb roasted turkey breast and beef tenderloin from the chef carving station.
The room was filled with happy guests from the delicious gourmet food as they gathered around the blackjack tables all night long hoping to win big in casino chips that could be turned in for raffle tickets at the end of the night. As most guests hit the gaming tables a select few decided to try their luck at the intimate poker tournament which could win you a top prize of a four-day, three-night stay at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas! Other prizes included Chicago Cubs tickets and memorabilia, $200 to Hugo’s Frog Bar and Chophouse at Rivers Casino and Chicago Blackhawks tickets!
Guests who were enjoying the casino games were hoping to take home prizes such as Bose wireless speakers, a Cooper Hawk wine tasting experience, theater tickets, Pinstripes bowling and bocce package and much more! Not only could you win a raffle prize, but guests also showed their support and heavy interest in the amazing silent auction with over 25 items to bid on. Guests went home with trips to the Caribbean, a custom suit and shirt from the Knot Standard, a one week stay in Hawaii, wine and chocolate baskets, Lucky Lotto basket with over $250 in lottery tickets and much more!
The evening came together for a few moments while Chief Executive Officer, Nancy Nagy, and Foundation Chairman, Joe Stacy, shared a few words on how the work of the KoenigRubloff Cares foundation impacts the community.
