The cards flew at blackjack and poker tables, while the dice and roulette wheels were hot at The RUNNELLS Specialized Hospital Foundation’s Third Annual Casino Night. Mt. Carmel Hall in Berkeley Heights was the site of the Atlantic City-style
casino fundraiser.

Following the gambling, Arthur Kobitz of Hillside won the big prize at the evening’s final event, the tricky tray auction…a Sharp Aquos wide screen TV. Some of the other prizes included a trip to Las Vegas (air fare and hotel); a golf foursome at any of Union County’s public golf courses; a selection from Ashley Furniture, tickets to professional sporting events and a Movado clock. Of course Jacquie Kupper of Warren was happy as winner of the evening’s 50-50 with a take-home pot of $495.

“I’d like to thank all of the organizations and individuals who donated the outstanding prizes for this special evening,” said Union County Freeholder Vice Chairman Daniel P. Sullivan. “Their contributions are very much appreciated and enabled money to be raised to improve the quality of life of our residents and patients.”
