New Jersey Police Benevolent Association Hold Casino Night for Cancer Victim
The Scotch Plains Police Benevolent Association in Union County New Jersey is running a special Casino Night in order to support the family of a 25-year department veteran, CJ Franco.
The daughter of the long serving officer, Samantha Franco, has recently been diagnosed with stage 4 synovial sarcoma, an extremely rare and aggressive type of cancer. She is currently undergoing treatment for the illness at the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and the Police Benevolent Association is hoping to raise enough money to pay for some of the expenses not covered by insurance.
The casino night is taking place next month, February 8th, and tickets cost $40 and include dinner, beer, wine and play money for gambling to win prizes. It is being held at the Scotch Plains Italian-American Hall at 1976 Valley Avenue.
Participants in the night will be able to enjoy games of Blackjack, Poker, Roulette and Craps and there will be some fantastic prizes handed out.
The PBA is also accepting donations in the form of table sponsorships, half a table costs $150 and a full gaming table sponsorship is $300.
