On Friday September 26th, 2014, the third edition of the city’s Casino contre le Cancer takes over the posh Windsor Ballroom on Peel St., and takes to the betting tables to amass $150 000 to benefit the Diane Asselin Fund for cancer immunotherapy research.  Organized by Ms. Maral Tersakian and a dedicated group of 25-40 year-old professionals that make up the Montreal Cancer Institute’s Young Ambassadors Circle, the event has so far managed to raise $180 000 in its previous two years, and given the city’s young jet set biz leaders an increasingly high-profile evening to keep them coming back.

Case in point, the 5-course VIP dinner by Chef Jérôme Ferrer is already sold out, but not to worry as the party truly gets going at 9PM with a ‘Vintage Vegas’ themed Casino Night and enough animation, entertainment, and food and drink to keep party-goers going until late.

We’re talking gaming tables and a silent auction, both in support of the cause, as well as open bar, food stations, special performances by visual artist Antoine Tavaglione (TAVA) and burlesque performer Scarlett James, music by the ‘much-in-demand’ DJ Abeille, video content created by Circo de Bakuza, and a luxurious experience by Armani Beauty. Top it all off with a grade-A crowd of MTL’s finest out to network, and you have an evening that could very well take place in Sin City itself….just as long as it doesn’t turn into another sequel to ‘The Hangover’!

As for the details, here’s what you need to know to ‘ante up’ and join:
