Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Casino Benefit

Don your most dashing cocktail outfit this Saturday, March 12, for the 20th annual Casino Royale event to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Sponsored in part by the Boston Bruins Foundation, the bash will include hors d’oeuvres, live music by The Pulse of Boston, and a silent auction offering goods such as weekend getaways and Celtics tickets ? and, of course, Vegas-style gambling.

Don’t like to chance it with your cash? Don’t stress: CFF has been lauded as a charity that “won’t waste your money” by SmartMoney Magazine. A percentage of your ticket price is tax deductible, and proceeds from the event will fund research and clinical trials to help find a cure for the disease, which affects 30,000 children and adults in the U.S.

General admission tickets are $70 in advance and $75 at the door. If you’re feeling extra ritzy, the $150 VIP party pass includes entry to a private reception and casino, chow from assorted food stations, and complimentary beer and wine throughout the night. A good cause, a great time, and a chance to break out your favorite LBD? That’s a deal we’ll take. Because no matter what Bond says, you only live once.
