Bad luck doesn’t always fall on Friday the 13th. This was especially true for United Way of Montgomery, Radford & Floyd. On April 13th the organization hosted their second annual Formal Affair: Casino Night. The odds were in their favor as 200 guests from the New River Valley arrived to a red carpet treatment at The German Club Manor. Attendees from around the New River Valley tested their luck on the black jack tables and danced to live music by Awesomesauce and DJ Gene Broadus. Guests also enjoyed prime rib, miniature cheesecakes, and took photos at April Amodeo’s photo booth. Thousands of dollars were donated in prizes from local artisans, businesses and individuals to entice guests to purchase extra raffle tickets and receive complimentary casino play money!
All proceeds from the event benefited the local community building efforts of United Way of Montgomery, Radford & Floyd. This was an annual event and United Way looks forward to hosting A Formal Affair next year!
