Come to SugarHouse Casino on December 17th from 7-10pm and contribute to the Louie’s Voice Toy Drive to benefit the children of the Devereux-Kanner Center and the Bancroft School for Special Needs.

In the wake of the Don Tollefson Scandal, Louie’s Voice is forging ahead with it’s 3rd annual XMAS TOY DRIVE fundraiser.  3 years ago, I walked into the Devereux Kanner Center, in West Chester, where my son Louie was residing and saw many children there, not home for the holidays.  I came to find out that many children there are ‘custodians of the state’, in that THEY DON’T GO HOME.  In an effort to make things better, I personally paid for toys and gifts for the children in the home where my son resides.  This event has grown bigger and bigger every year, leading to the formation of a non-profit called ‘Louie’s Voice’ to benefit autistic children and their families.  Louie’ Voice has already made an impact in the Philadelphia area by mediating for a family that suffered from a most unpleasant experience in a local restaurant.  Featured already on FOX 29, Louie’s Voice is hopeful to render emergency assistance, guidance, and resources to families that suffer from Autism.  We say families because Autism doesn’t just affect one.. it affects the entire family.  Please come and join us for a fun filled evening with great music, great people and learn more about who we are and what we intend to accomplish.

$20 donation at the door.  Drink vouchers, $10 free slot play & Food are courtesy of the Sugarhouse. Proceeds go directly for the Louie’s Voice Toy Drive to benefit the children of the Devereux-Kanner Center and the Bancroft School for Special Needs.
