As the red carpet rolled out, the KoenigRubloff Cares Foundation got ready for A Night in Monte Carlo, a fun filled evening with the goal to raise funds for two beneficiaries of the foundation: Habitat for Humanity Chicagoland and Sunshine Kids Foundation.
Guests were welcomed by a Deep Eddy welcome drink served by the Deep Eddy Betty Models as they made their way to the Gibsons signature buffet featuring carving and flatbread stations. Throughout the evening, guests were able to enjoy passed bites including mini crab cakes, grilled lollipop lambchops, grilled shrimp skewers, and brie cheese & apricot tarts. To compliment the delicious food, guests could try a variety of OneHope wines at the wine-tasting table compliments of Via OneHope or stop at the bar for beverages from Heaven Hill, Deep Eddy Vodka and MillerCoors.
While a handful of guests tried their luck at the intimate poker tournament which could win you a top prize of a four-day, three-night stay a Caesars Palace, many others tested their hand at the charitable gaming tables. Prizes ranged from a Lucky Strike Bowling Party including shoe rentals and snacks for eight, Lucky Lotto basket with over $250 in Lottery Tickets, a Polaroid instant camera, plus many more. The gaming tables were bustling with jackpots all night long!
The main event of the evening featured a silent auction with over 35 incredible items including extraordinary gift baskets, many vacation packages, 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.
