J.Christopher Real Estate Group Hosts Cocktails and Casino Night to Benefit the Autism Project
LINCOLN, R.I. (May 16, 2019) — J.Christopher Real Estate Group will host its annual Cocktails and Casino Night on Saturday, June 22nd, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Warwick, R.I. This event will benefit the Autism Project, whose mission is to help raise awareness regarding autism spectrum disorder.
The Crowne Plaza’s grand ballroom will be turned into a casino for the event, where guests can enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres while taking part in a variety of games and raffles.
Jarrod C. Lewis, owner of J.Christopher Real Estate Group, sees the event as an opportunity for people to network, have fun, and support a cause that is deeply personal to him.
Two years ago, Lewis’ son was diagnosed with autism and he, and his wife, turned to the Autism Project for support at an important turning point in their lives. “Like many parents, we were devastated to find out our son had autism,” Lewis said. “When the pain and shock subsided, we set out to ensure Jonathan’s success by working with the Autism Project.”
The Autism Project is a non-profit organization comprised of parents, specialists, and community members who work towards providing support, training, and programming for kids and adults with autism. “We didn’t know what the next steps were, and they helped us understand how to best approach our son’s condition,” Lewis added.
Net proceeds from Cocktails and Casino Night will go to the Autism Project to help the organization achieve its mission of helping support the local community.
Tickets are $40, and admission includes a set amount of playing chips that can be used to play blackjack, roulette, and craps. Guests can also hold on to their chips in exchange for raffle tickets for chances to win prizes such as certificates to local businesses, hotel stays, gift baskets, artwork created by kids working with the Autism Project, and more. A luxury raffle that requires a separate purchase will also be available.
Last year’s Cocktails and Casino Night was considered a success for the organization, and, Lewis says he expects this event’s turnout to be even better.
Event sponsors so far include Accutrust Mortgage, Dave’s Marketplace, Robbins Funeral Home, Homestar Mortgage, the Law Office of Michael C. Lima, the Law Office of Robert Ragosta, Navigant Credit Union, Peter Lawrence Nationwide Insurance, Shamrock Financial, and the Jonathan L. Ucran, CPA, LLC accounting practice. Sponsorship opportunities are still available for local organizations and companies that want to support the event.
“We would like to thank our generous sponsors, and hope to have their continued support to help make Cocktails and Casino Night a yearly event,” Lewis said.
