Buffalo Sabres defenseman Zach Bogosian announces the plans for Casino for a Cause on Saturday, January 7 at 7 p.m. at the Town Ballroom, 681 Main St., in downtown Buffalo. Casino for a Cause is the inaugural event to benefits the Bogo Bunch, a charity that Bogosian and his wife, Bianca, formed in 2015 to raise funds for the Buffalo Wellness Centers Juicer Fund and Roswell Park Cancer Institute.
"The Bogo Bunch is a way for me to personally give back to the community because cancer has affected people whom I hold dear, including my late grandmother," says Bogosian. "Because of the advances in treatments and research, I was able to spend many enjoyable years with her even though she was battling Lymphoma."
Sponsorships and individual tickets for Casino for a Cause can be purchased on the Town Ballroom website beginning November 21.
Town Ballroom will be transformed back to the bygone era when the Queen City's finest club was filled with showgirls and tough guys like Al Capone. Casino for a Cause will include live music, an amazing auction, open bar and mouthwatering appetizers provided by local restaurants.
Bogosian and his Buffalo Sabres teammates will deal the cards and work the gaming tables at Buffalo's ultimate nightclub party with a purpose.
Event highlights include:
• The inaugural theme "Casino for a Cause." Travel back in time to the Town Ballroom's heyday when the former "Town Casino" was filled with shuffling showgirls and tough guys playing cards.
• Silent and live auction
• Music provided by Bob Greco and the Rat Pack Band along with guest DJ at 10 p.m.
• This is a 21 and over event, a rule that will be strictly enforced at the door
• For the latest event updates, follow the Bogo Bunch on Instagram and Twitter.
• Items will not be allowed in to be autographed, as this is a fundraiser for charity with plenty of autographed items to be auctioned off.
Founded in 2015 by Buffalo Sabres defenseman Zach Bogosian and his wife, Bianca, The Bogo Bunch is a 100% non-profit charity that creates a family atmosphere for those directly and indirectly affected by cancer.
