The Eastern Hills Sunrise Rotary Club will hold a Monte Carlo Night at the Brookfield Country Club on Saturday, February 11, 2006.

It is dedicated to serving individuals affected by Prader-Willi syndrome, their families, and interested professionals.
A $10.00 admission ticket for the Eastern Hills Sunrise Rotary Club ninth annual Monte Carlo Night is required. Any Eastern Hills Sunrise Rotarian can provide tickets for an evening of Blackjack and assorted games of chance. In addition, there will be Bell Jar tickets, a 50/50 Raffle, and a Chinese Auction available throughout the evening. The club will sell a wrist band at the door for food, beer, and soft drinks. An additional wrist band will be available for purchase to participate in a separate wine tasting event. There will also be a cash bar for other alcoholic beverages not listed above. There is a dress code at Brookfield Country Club that includes NO JEANS, which will be strictly enforced. The event begins at 7:00 pm and ends at Midnight, with free valet parking.
Anyone 21 years or older may attend and participate in all portions of the Monte Carlo night. As a courtesy, Brookfield Country Club members with proper ID will be offered an admission ticket at the door at no charge.
Prader-Willi syndrome affects children who are born with a chromosomal defect. There is no cure. The syndrome results in the individual suffering from insatiable hunger that causes uncontrollable weight gain and behavior issues. The affected individual’s metabolic system is slowed down, requiring a smaller amount of food before weight is gained. Affected individuals typically must eat less than 1,200 calories per day.
The Eastern Hills Sunrise Rotary Club holds two major fundraising events each year. In 2006, the Club’s first fundraiser will be its Monte Carlo Night.
The Eastern Hills Sunrise Rotary Club raises funds for the Prader-Willi Syndrome Association through the Club’s 501 (c) (3) foundation – the Eastern Hills Sunrise Rotary Foundation.
Companies interested in sponsoring or individuals interested in attending the Monte Carlo Night should call Dr. Joseph Margarone III at (716) 631-2800.
