The fourth annual Texas Children’s Cancer Center Casino Night hit the jackpot by raising over $420,000 for the pediatric cancer center.
The night of glitz, games, and glam took place in Las Vegas at the Wynn Hotel where more than 130 guests flew in to play their cards. In between the dice-rolling and card-playing, Kolja Rockov, CFO of LINN Energy, made sure that the guests were as excited about the event as he was. Mr. Rockov has chaired the Texas Children’s Cancer Center Casino Night for the last four years, where he has taken the event from the glimmering deck of a party-yacht to the bright-lit casinos of Las Vegas.
Notable guests included Roxanne and Kolja Rockov, Fran and Keith Buchanan, Annette and Doug Liftman, Kristin and Rick Brice, and Autumn Hugo. Dr. David Poplack, director of Texas Children’s Cancer Center, welcomed the guests at the hotel as the night kicked off.
The blackjack tables and roulette wheels are already in motion for next year’s event. With 2012 coming to a close, Kolja Rockov has set his sights high for the 5th Annual Texas Children’s Cancer Center Casino Night. The event is scheduled for Friday, November 8, 2013 at the Wynn Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
