For more than a decade, St. Catherine’s Center for Children’s annual spring gala celebrated classic films. In 2019, our Casino Royale fundraiser was such a hit, we decided to roll the dice and do it all again! This year, our Casino Royale Gala will be held on Friday, May 1 at 6:00 pm at Franklin Plaza in Troy. We’re betting you’ll love what we have in store for you: one-of-a-kind gift baskets, live music, a fantastic Las Vegas getaway raffle and, of course, casino game tables for your fun and enjoyment!

This year, our gala honors The Family of Charlie and Helen Crisafulli. Charles and Helen were already longtime friends of St. Catherine’s when, in 2015, they established our Charlie’s Children Fund—a special fund that supports unique and unmet medical expenses for our children.

The Family of Charlie and Helen Crisafulli are a community treasure deserving of special recognition. In addition to their generous support of St. Catherine’s Center for Children, Crisafulli Bros. Plumbing & Heating Contractors has partnered with and supported more than 30 other Capital Region charitable organizations and causes through Crisafulli Cares!

Click here to join our Honorary Committee, purchase Gala tickets, or enter into our Las Vegas Getaway grand prize raffle!

Our Las Vegas Getaway grand prize package includes a pre-paid $1,000 Bellagio Hotel & Casino gift card, and a $500 gift card for flights. You do not need to be present to win!

Your support of our Casino Royale Gala not only recognizes The Family of Charlie and Helen Crisafulli, but it also helps us provide support and services for vulnerable children, families, and adults in more than 20 New York State Counties. Our programs reached more than 2,000 people last year! We provide therapeutic foster care and residential services for abused and neglected children, housing services for the homeless and those at-risk of becoming homeless, a special education elementary school, and community-based services for vulnerable families.
