Chicago, IL — March 12, 2012
Firefly Legal’s Director of Client Services Jennifer Dlugolecki and Marketing and Communications Specialist Stephanie Irvine attended the ALA (Association of Legal Administrators) Greater Chicago Chapter’s Casino Night, which was held at Hotel Allegro in downtown Chicago. Firefly Legal was also an event sponsor.
The ALA is a great organization for those in the legal industry. It offers countless networking opportunities, support, education, and a myriad of resources. They often hold conferences, networking opportunities, and other events for both members and business partners.
The Casino Night event this year featured a huge raffle, scrumptious buffet, a nice bar with two complimentary drink tickets, a DJ, and a door prize. The proceeds of the sponsorship went to benefit the Israel Idonije Foundation, which is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to improving the lives of children in under-served communities around Chicago, Winnipeg, and Africa. For those of you who don’t know, Israel Idonije is a starting defensive end for the Chicago Bears.
Israel Idonije showed up in person for the event and spent time taking pictures, signing autographs, and helping with the event. One of the raffles was a dinner with Israel Idonije with two of your friends to one of his favorite restaurants in Chicago.
The night was fulled with fun and laughter as ALA members took to the casino tables for a few spins and hands at the blackjack, roulette, craps, and poker tables. Participants were provided with $100 of play money to be able to play the games. It was a lot of fun, and it allowed me to brush off my poker skills at a wonderful fundraiser for a great cause!
