GenR (the IRC’s young professionals group) will host a fun Casino night benefiting the IRC's vital work helping resettled refugees rebuild their lives in Charlottesville.
Our fundraising event will feature casino games like poker and black jack, where guests can show their gaming chops and compete for bragging rights – sorry, no cash prizes. Gamers can earn even more chips by making a donation, becoming a GenR member or fundraising prior to the event.
We hope you will join us at this event. All proceeds will support the International Rescue Committee’s critical humanitarian work in Charlottesville.
