WILKES-BARRE, Pa. – A game night in Luzerne County all had a purpose – to find a cure for childhood brain cancer.
Little Eric’s Foundation hosted a casino night at the Holiday Inn near Wilkes-Barre.
Gamblers played blackjack, poker and roulette.
Little Eric’s Foundation was founded by Eric and Jessica Speicher of West Pittston.
Their son, affectionately known as Little E, died in 2013.
“People know why they’re here and what we’re here for, but to be able to come out as a group and enjoy each other’s company again in an environment like this where people are having a good time is all good for a while why we do it,” said Eric and Jessica Speicher.
All proceeds will be used for travel and medical expenses for children currently undergoing cancer treatment.
