BCRFA Raises $100,000 for Breast Cancer With Casino Night Event

The Breast Cancer Research Foundation of Alabama (BCRFA) today announced that its 2021 Pink Palace Casino Night fundraiser has raised over $100,000 to fund Alabama-based breast cancer research.

The event, which celebrated its 13th anniversary this year, welcomed more than 300 Alabamians to Soiree Event Gallery in Hoover on Saturday, July 24th. Tameron Automotive Group and Renasant Bank served as presenting sponsors of the evening.

“The Pink Palace Casino Night has always generated excitement and fostered incredible generosity, but our team and board were truly blown away this year by the support we saw for this event,” said Beth Bradner Davis, executive director of the BCRFA. “Although we were forced to cancel last year due to the pandemic, it’s clear that the Pink Palace Casino Night and our mission of raising funds and awareness for breast cancer research has not lost any of its significance since then.”

Guests at the event enjoyed Vegas-style gaming, such as blackjack, poker, roulette, craps and slots, with winners being awarded specialty “money” to hand in for prizes or rewards. The event also featured a silent auction, including items like vacation getaways, dining packages, jewelry, and home furnishings. Kathy G. provided catering services, musical group II Da Maxx performed throughout the evening, and drinks were provided by AlaBev, Coca-Cola, United Johnson Brothers of Alabama, and OneHope.
All proceeds from the event are invested in research throughout the state through the O’Neal Comprehensive Cancer Center at UAB and their collaborative partners.

“This event is always great fun, but more importantly, it raises a significant amount of money for lifesaving breast cancer research,” said Laura Hinton, breast cancer survivor and BCRFA board president. “On behalf of survivors like me, patients who are currently in treatment, and those we have lost – thank you for supporting breast cancer research.”

The BCRFA supports a comprehensive approach to battling breast cancer through collaborative and innovative research to help diagnose, treat, prevent and eradicate the disease. All of the funds raised remain in Alabama, supporting local research, which in turn, makes a national impact.
