2023 Roll for a Reason Gala


Thank you to all who joined with us for our 9th annual Roll for a Reason Gala – it was a great evening for an even greater cause! We are so excited that we broke our goal of raising over $200K for dementia research at this one-of-a-kind evening… bringing in a final updated total of over $217K this year! We were absolutely blown away by your incredible support in helping us far surpass our goal – thank you to all who sponsored, donated, and attended :)

Check out all the fun by watching this year’s recap video below!

So what was this evening all about? Held on Saturday, November 4th, 2023, guests enjoyed an over-the-top Monte Carlo Casino themed evening with live magic by Eric Russell, performance painting by Pittsburgh’s own, Cody Sabol, and gaming such as poker, blackjack, craps, roulette, cash quiz, and slots all for chances to win various prizes. Heavenly Cuisine Custom Catering provided amazing appetizers, a carving station, and ramen noodle bar and a classy twist on the traditional favorite, chicken stroganoff! There was also spirits provided by PA Libations, live music by Take Two, a photo booth, a NEW strolling champagne dress and a mystery wine pull offering.

This one-of-a-kind event also featured a hybrid Silent Auction model, with items available for bid online by all, as well as exclusive items at the event itself for bid by attendees only… this casino evening is unlike any others!

To our wonderful evening volunteers… THANK YOU for going above and beyond to ensure the evenings success!
