Mark your calendars for this Friday. A casino night fundraiser will be held by the Visiting Angels of Redland, CA, offering poker, blackjack and other games. The charity event kicks off at 6:00 PM, and proceeds will benefit the Redlands Meals on Wheels program.

The two-hour event will be held at the Joslyn Senior Center at 21 Grant St. and will include hors-d’oeuvres and wine sampling sponsored by Hope Wine. Tickets are available for purchase for $10 at both the senior center and at the Visiting Angels office at 330 N. Sixth St., Suite 201, Redlands, CA.

Visiting Angels is an elder care organization located throughout the US that was begun in 1998. The group offers in-home care services and provides a network of trained professionals to offer hourly, overnight and 24-hour care. It is a division of Living Assistance Services, Inc. out of Pennsylvania, and has locations throughout the US.

Meals on Wheels is a program that provides meals to individuals who are housebound and cannot prepare their own meals. It was started in the UK in 1943 and expanded to Australia a decade later. It made its debut in the US in 1954 in Pennsylvania. In 1974, the first official organization was established and it now supports over 5,000 community-based senior nutrition organizations around the country.
