NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - The Brooke Healey Foundation is hosting its 3rd Annual Casino Night Fundraiser on Saturday, March 25 at 7 p.m. at the Grand Summit Hotel.  The event will feature food, open bar, live music, action-packed casino games, raffle, and silent auction.  Prizes include Broadway tickets, hotel stays, dinners out, golf foursomes, sports tickets, summer camps, beauty products, jewelry and much more.      
 
The Brooke Healey Foundation was formed in honor of 5-year-old Brooke Healey of New Providence, who was diagnosed in January 2013 with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), a 100% fatal, inoperable and very aggressive tumor in the middle of the brainstem. She bravely fought for eight months before passing away on September 9, 2013.  
 
DIPG primarily affects children and there is currently no cure. The Brooke Healey Foundation funds research for that cure, provides support directly to families with children battling DIPG or other brain tumors, and bestows scholarships to civically-minded graduating seniors of New Providence and Madison high schools.
