Must Attend: Casino Contre Le Cancer

Casino? Black tie? Charity? Some of the top young professionals in Montreal? You got it! The Montreal Cancer Institute’s Young Ambassadors Circle and Mrs. Maral Tersakian, its Executive Director, are pleased to host the second exciting edition of the Casino contre le Cancer on Friday, September 20, at the extravagant Le Windsor Ballroom.

The Montreal Cancer Institute’s Young Ambassadors circle is a group comprised of young leaders from various professional backgrounds, each holding the Institute’s mission close to their heart. Some of its ambassadors were nominees in our Notable Awards and some have been featured as our YP and YEDailys, such as Ludovic Dumas and Janice Yip.

In its first year of the Casino contre le Cancer event, the organization raised a total of $80,000 to finance and support the creation of a chair on immunotherapy through the Diane Asselin Fund, and this year they are aiming even higher in support of this amazing cause.

What can you expect at the event? An open cocktail bar, a full casino filled with blackjack, poker, roulette and anything else your gambling heart desires, local superstar DJ Toddy Flores, a wonderful silent auction, tuxedos and gowns in every corner, and so much more.

The super notable part? We will have our very own Notable Lounge, where you can win prizes for next year’s event, get your picture taken in a chic setting reminiscent of a luxe Paris lounge, and mingle with the best of them!

If you want to play high roller for the night, you can purchase VIP tickets for $250, which include access to the Poker Tournament with WSOP pros Marc-André Ladouceur, Pascal Lefrancois and Charles-Alexandre Sylvestre, or a five-course dinner beginning at 6pm (limited seating) and access to the Casino night, beginning at 9pm. The $150 ticket includes access to the Casino night, beginning at 9pm… either way you can’t go wrong.

Because we love our Notable readers so much, we are giving away 6 tickets (3 pairs value of $300 each) to this swanky affair. All you need to do is tweet the following: “@NotableCA, bring me and my poker hand to the @cancermtl #casinocancer!” Winners will be announced next week.
