2018 Tackle Sickle Cell Casino Night in Boston

Join Next Step, Jason & Devin McCourty and Boston Medical Center on Monday, October 22nd

 

Devin and Jason McCourty of the New England Patriots are hosting “Casino Night in Boston” on Monday, October 22, 2018 as part of his Tackle Sickle Cell campaign. This special event takes place from 7:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. (VIP Red Carpet at 6:30pm) at Royale, located at 279 Tremont Street in Boston. For a fourth straight year Casino Night in Boston will benefit two Boston area nonprofits, Next Step and Boston Medical Center. The fundraiser will include fun casino games with funny money, delicious food and drinks, and special guest appearances from the McCourty Twins and some of their teammates from the New England Patriots who mingle with guests all night long.

The funds raised at Casino Night in Boston will support Next Step's free year-round programming for teens and young adults living with sickle cell disease, like Ingrid, a Next Step participant and guest speaker at the 2017 Casino Night in Boston:

"It's hard being a teenager. And it's even harder being a teenager living with a chronic illness, who is learning how to manage her health, while transitioning into adult care. Next Step understands this. I am always moved when I hear the experiences of my Next Step peers and how they continue to persevere in-spite of numerous setbacks. Knowing that there are others facing the same challenges is so comforting. Next Step helps me see that I am not alone."  Ingrid said on stage in front of 250 guests.
