Monte Carlo Night Raises $10,000

McLean Rotary, in partnership with the Rotary Clubs of Dunn Loring, Herndon, Burke, and Tysons Corner, raised more than $10,000 for local and international at-risk youth at the 11th Annual Rotary Monte Carlo Night held, Nov. 14, at the Westwood Country Club in Vienna.

More than 400 business, professional and civic leaders participated in this year's event, which included casino-style gaming, live and silent auctions, a $500 cash door prize, food and dancing to one of the area's leading jazz groups, The Loudoun Jazz Ensemble. Friends, both old and new, enjoyed a fabulous night of fun playing their favorite games of chance.

"We know everyone who attended Monte Carlo Night enjoyed themselves; however, we cannot forget the purpose of the event: 'We cannot gamble with our children's future.’ The proceeds from the event will help 'Make Dreams Real' for thousands of at-risk children through educational and humanitarian programs of McLean Rotary," said McLean Rotarian and McLean Monte Carlo Night chair Matthew Wallace.
