A night of glitz, glamour and games, Texas Children’s Cancer Center Casino Night is a fundraiser like no other!
November 10, 2010 – Texas Children’s Cancer Center
Kolja Rockov, Executive VP and CFO of LINN Energy chaired the 2nd Annual Texas Children’s Cancer Center Casino Night event on Friday, October 8, 2010. Linn Energy presented a check for $190,000 on November 10, 2010 for the proceeds from the benefit.
Approximately 120 guests kicked off the night aboard a yacht for a cocktail hour cruise leaving from a private dock on the Kemah Boardwalk. The yacht returned to the Kemah Aquarium, where guests enjoyed the Casino Night and dinner in the ballroom. Guests received raffle tickets for the chance to win many great prizes – including elaborate vacations, arts packages, sports packages and an all inclusive trip to the Golden Nugget in Vegas.
“Jackpot Sponsors” of $25,000 and above included Kolja Rockov, LINN Energy, BNP Paribas, Credit Agricole and RBC Capital Markets – all of which helped raise net proceeds of $190,000 for the Cancer Center.
