Elmhurst Holds Elegant Dinner, Casino Night

Residents Celebrate the Arrival of Spring

Residents of Elmhurst, The House of Friendship, an assisted living residence in Wheeling, kicked up their heels at a Roaring Twenties Casino and Elegant Evening to celebrate the return of spring.

Guests were welcomed into two casino venues by “flapper” girls in costume. Residents were invited to try their hand at spinning the money wheel, a fast game of 21, Plinko and a little horse racing. Their winning chips were exchanged for Elmhurst “bucks” which residents may spend at the in-house sundries shop. Cocktails were available in the casino, as well.

An elegant dinner followed the casino event. Shrimp cocktail and prime rib were on the menu. Chef Michael Travis presented cherries jubilee at table-side as dessert.
