Kessler Foundation recently announced that it will be hosting its first Monte Carlo Night. The 5-hour evening is slated to be held November 15 and will benefit individuals with disabilities and feature former football player Eric LeGrand as its ambassador, the Foundation adds. 

The event will feature a wide range of activities, such as live music, classic casino games, and an awards ceremony. During the awards ceremony, Kessler reports that it will be presenting the first Kessler Foundation Community Inspirational Leadership Awards to LeGrand, Scott Chesney, and Bonnie Evans. Following a tackle that paralyzed him in 2010, LeGrand has made progress in both therapy and in successful ventures in sportscasting and publishing, the Foundation reports. Chesney has reportedly served as a motivational speaker for nearly three decades since becoming paralyzed at age 15 and travels the world in order to assist individuals in living a quality life. The Foundation notes that it will also honor Evans, its chief executive officer of Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation who trained under the Institute’s founder Henry Kessler, MD, PhD, and has dedicated her career to improving rehabilitative care. 

The release also notes that all proceeds from Monte Carlo Night support Kessler Foundation’s rehabilitation research and employment initiatives for individuals with disabilities. Potential attendees are encourages to RSVP by October 31, the Foundation says.
