St. Luke's Kid for a Night Reveals the Inner Gambler

This is actually NOT a Las Vegas showgirl, but Dr. Greg Janos, executive medical director of St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital.

Hundreds of St. Luke's friends and physicians, along with several ghosts of Elvis, played the night away at the Boise Centre this past weekend for a really great cause: our youngest patients.This loved annual community party, which raises funds for St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital, turned 21 on May 31 with a Las Vegas-themed Casino Night. Thanks to our 52 sponsors, 880 guests, bidders on the 98 silent auction packages, and 68 volunteers, more than $471,000 was raised – a new record!

Organizers followed Kid for a Night by delivering Miracle Bears, custom-dressed stuffed bears purchased at the event and donated back to the children receiving care at St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital. Click here for more photos.
