Kathy Wakile, one of the stars of reality TV show Real Housewives of New Jersey and brand ambassador for Pala Casino, is partnering with the outfit to raise money for a cause that has touched her family on a personal level. PalaCasino.com has put together a multi-faceted February fundraising drive to benefit the Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation (CBTF), a non-profit organization founded in 1988 by laymen and medical professionals that is dedicated to improving “the treatment, quality of life and the long term outlook for children with brain and spinal cord tumors through research, support, education, and advocacy to families and survivors.”
Wakile’s daughter Victoria has twice been diagnosed with brain tumors and made complete recoveries, with each instance also having additional positive consequences. After the first occurrence, Wakile and her family became ardent supporters of brain tumor research, with the majority of her philanthropic work from that point forward focusing on the cause. Furthermore, Victoria’s second battle with the illness, which came when she was 20 years of age, helped cement her decision to embark on a nursing career following her successful surgery.
Wakile’s role on the Real Housewives of New Jersey has undoubtedly provided this important cause with an enhanced level of exposure. Now, given their established and fruitful relationship with Wakile, Pala Casino has taken a notable step to do their part in increasing the visibility and efficacy of her already impressive advocacy efforts on CBTF’s behalf. The online casino is providing $50 in bonuses to any new player that signs up during February with the registration code Kathy. Additionally, for every one of those players who makes $50 in deposits to their accounts, PalaCasino.com will match that amount in a donation to CBTF up to a cumulative total of $10,000.
The fundraising effort provides new players with a rewarding incentive to try the site’s offerings, which include a full array of slot and table games, while also raising money for a very worthwhile cause. For their part, Pala is pleased to be able to assist one of its partners in raising both funds and awareness for a cause that is dear to her and millions of others.
“Kathy and Victoria’s story is inspiring to us and we are excited to help raise awareness for the Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation through this program,” said Jeremy Clemons, Chief Marketing Officer of Pala Interactive.
