Applied Innovation to Present 5th Annual Casino Royale Charity Gala

Grand Rapids, MI, September 1st, 2023Applied Innovation, a prominent technology company based in Grand Rapids, is delighted to unveil its highly anticipated fifth annual philanthropic extravaganza: Casino Royale. This premier event will extend its support to the Children’s Healing Center, a distinguished nonprofit organization within the local Grand Rapids community. Having achieved remarkable success in the past, with last year’s fundraiser raising a total of $33,000, this year’s event aims to surpass that achievement.

“Inspired by an idea from years ago, this event lets us unite with clients and staff while backing a cause vital to our community,” remarked Casey Lowery, COO of Applied Innovation. “Supporting Children’s Healing Center resonates deeply – that’s why we keep this great initiative alive.”

Children’s Healing Center, a year-round recreational hub designed exclusively for children with weakened immune systems, offers a diverse array of research-driven play, socialization, and learning programs. The center welcomes all children from birth to 26 years who are immunocompromised along with their families. The center’s central objective is to provide a haven for families to experience the transformative power of play, foster connections, and cultivate a sense of belonging.

Melissa Block, Director of Growth & Development at CHC, expressed her gratitude by saying, “We are thrilled to come together with Applied Innovation for the fifth consecutive year at the Casino Royale charity event. Beyond being a cherished vendor partner, they have consistently championed our cause.  Through this event, made possible by the kindness of the Applied Innovation community, we’re opening our doors for even more families who have a child with a weak immune system. They get to dive into a community of fun and friendships, all within a safe and clean environment.”

Mark your calendars for Thursday, September 28, 2023, at 6:30 PM, as Casino Royale comes alive at the Applied Innovation headquarters, located at 5555 Glenwood Hills Parkway SE, Grand Rapids, MI, 49512. This evening of elegance and excitement will encompass a variety of popular casino games such as blackjack, craps, roulette, and Texas hold ‘em, accompanied by cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Attendees will have the chance to win a variety of prizes, including a one-night downtown stay inclusive of dinner and a concert, a Yeti cooler, an exotic car rental experience, a cutting-edge 50” TV, a 2-hour captained boat cruise, and so much more.
