Benedictine brought our annual Spring Benefit back to Easton’s Tidewater Inn on Saturday April 28, 2012. This year we hosted “Bet on Benedictine: Casino Royale.” The benefit was attended by 320 people, and raised over $361,000 for tuition assistance for our special kids, and to assist with the construction of "universal design” homes for seniors with disabilities.

Earlier in the day, about 125 family and friends of Benedictine attended a ceremony near Ridgely to  break ground for the Senior Homes at their new homesites, off Central Avenue near North Caroline High School. CLICK HERE for details and photos of the groundbreaking ceremony.

The Benefit at the Tidewater Inn featured gambling action – blackjack, Texas Hold ‘Em poker, roulette, slot machines and more – in which the lucky could spend their winnings on furnishings for the senior homes, or enter a drawing for cash prizes. Everyone enjoyed the excitement of playing, the outstanding food, and the casual atmosphere. The event was the culmination of many months of planning by Benedictine and dedicated parent volunteers from all around the region. Special thanks go out to co-chairs Charley and Syd Mills of Arlington, VA, and Dan and Ellen Tobin of Potomac, MD, and to all the volunteers on the Spring Benefit committee.
