Blackjack, roulette, poker and other games of chance awaited guests Sept. 29 at the sold-out A Night in Vegas benefiting the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Arkansas.
The speakeasy-style casino party was held at the Junior League building. Partygoers were given $100 in chips to try to win prizes. Beer, wine, signature cocktails, passed hors d'oeuvres and a silent auction also were part of the fun. More than 360 people were in attendance.
Jamie and Cale Block were co-chairmen of the event. He is a lawyer at Barber Law Firm, the presenting sponsor of the party. The evening was dedicated to Donna Clark, a longtime supporter of the house who had the vision to create A Night in Vegas in 2019.
The Ronald McDonald House, near Arkansas Children's Hospital, provides a home away from home for families of critically ill children who are being treated at area hospitals.
