First Annual Casino Night

On Saturday, April 14, 2018 the Albert Anthony Kayal Foundation hosted its First Annual Casino Night at The Cranford Social in Cranford, NJ. The event was a great success and we are so grateful for everyone who came out to the event. More than 115 people were in attendance and we raised over $13,000! It was an incredible first annual event, and we look forward to hosting the event every year in April.

A special thank you goes to our generous sponsors and the AAKF grantors who came out. The funds raised are going to sponsor motivational speaker, Chris Herren (former Boston Celtics basketball player) to speak with high school students of Westfield, Rahway, and Clark and Cranford. In September, Herren will talk to audiences about his past drug addictions, and his journey to recovery.
