March 16, 2006

Albany-- An exciting event in Albany let folks cash in on a little casino fun to fight cancer.

Cooper Tires and Viasys hosted "Casino Night" at Boxer's Two to raise money for the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life. People played craps, poker and roulette.

Organizers say the players definitely don't mind chipping in to fight cancer. "Just about everybody that's a member of the team for these fundraisers has in some way had some member of their family or themselves been touched by cancer so we all have a personal interest in it," says Jacque Howard.

This group hopes to raise about $10,000 this year from fundraising. They have a pool tournament fundraiser scheduled for next month.
