The Early Development of Global Education (EDGE) Charitable Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, invites the South Florida community to their second annual Casino Night. The Hispanic Police Officers Association of Miami-Dade (HPOA) is the presenting sponsor of “A Night in Casablanca.” The themed event will be held on Saturday, October 18, 2014 at 7:00 p.m., at The Fairways on the Key – Crandon Park Golf Course (located at 6700 Crandon Blvd., Key Biscayne, FL. 33149).
As of today, The EDGE Charitable Foundation has helped more than 20,000 children in the United States, Haiti, Jamaica, Kenya, Guatemala, India, Madagascar, Nicaragua and Puerto Rico. The organization raises funds to benefit children who are homeless, unaccompanied, and victims of human trafficking, domestic violence or victimized in any other way. Last year’s event raised money to fund various projects locally and globally. Ninety percent of funds raised impacted children on a local level.
“The EDGE set a goal during last year’s Casino Night to double the number of children to be impacted by the 2013 Casino Night event, and they not only achieved their aggressive goal, they surpassed it,” said Mercy Hernandez, founder and president of the EDGE Charitable Foundation.
The Casino Night’s lounge-style setting promises to become the EDGE Charitable Foundation’s humanitarian event of the year. CBS4 Miami reporter, MaryAnn Martinez, will be the Master of Ceremonies for this year’s gala which attracts a vibrant group of local business executives, community leaders and local celebrities. The evening will also feature two special celebrity guest hosts, Marysol Patton, President of The Patton Group Public Relations and star of Bravo Network’s hit reality show “Real Housewives of Miami,” and Alexia Echevarria, Executive Editor of Venue Magazine and television personality on Bravo Networks’s “Real Housewives of Miami.” During the evening, guests will enjoy classic cars, gaming tables, a VIP champagne bar, a Funclick photo booth, food provided by Sal’s Italian Restaurant, a dessert station courtesy of Azucar Ice Cream and Bindi Italian Desserts, a coffee station courtesy of Starbucks, cigars and cocktails. Attire for the event will be black and white chic.
