In the fall of 2013, Northern Plains Eye Foundation introduced Casino Royale, a Charity Affair, to benefit the Foundation’s programming efforts to protect and preserve vision, restore sight, and develop research to support and promote eye health.
Since the 2013 inaugural event, Casino Royale Charity Affair has raised over $250,000 in net proceeds to sustain thousands of free vision screenings annually for pre-school and elementary age children, sight-saving surgeries that help individuals in need regain their vision, and most importantly, independence, mobility and quality of life, scholarships for future eye care professionals and training for the construction industry on how to protect against injuries resulting in temporary or permanent vision loss in the workplace.
Equally important, Casino Royale offers a wonderful opportunity to showcase our Foundation and event sponsors to old friends and associates, as well as introduce ourselves to new acquaintances, and share the story of our important and worthwhile work throughout our community.
Every event sponsor, promotional partner, auction donor, and guest contributes to the success of Casino Royale. Join us in presenting our “Party with a Purpose.” Call (605) 716-6733 to visit with our executive director about available sponsorship opportunities.
