YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A casino night to benefit the Rich Center for Autism was held in Youngstown Saturday evening.

The event was sponsored by the Braking Point Recovery Center. Guests were treated to cocktails and many popular table games.

All this was to help aid the Rich Center in their mission to help families at no cost.

“We service 72 students and we do that tuition-free to parents,” said Melanie Carfolo, executive director of the Rich Center. “So all of this money is going towards the cost for therapies and education for our children.”

The Rich Center is hoping to hold more Casino Night’s in the future.
