Part of the Aspers Group, the Casino MK is the largest casino outside London and marketing manager Karen Andrew is delighted that the venue will contribute towards a fantastic cause, with £1 from every sold glass of Bottega Gold or Bottega Rose Gold prosecco going towards breast cancer awareness charities.
She said in CitiBlog Milton Keynes: “Our research shows women really enjoy the social aspect of the casino night out, relaxing and sharing the unique experience with groups of friends. To support this we have created a special low stakes ‘Pink Jack’ table aimed at our female customer base. Our drinks partner Bottega, who supply us with both Bottega Gold and Bottega Rose Gold, offered to get on board too, and we saw an opportunity at the same time to raise funds for Breast Cancer Awareness.”
A charity fundraiser will take place on Wednesday 30th September to kick-start the month’s events, and will be hosted by Gail Emms MBE. The former badminton player, a silver medallist at the 2004 Olympics and Blackjack fan, is thrilled to be helping out. She said: “As a naturally competitive person I enjoy the challenge of Blackjack but I also really love the social side that The Casino MK offers, especially to women who might otherwise feel intimidated in a more old school casino venue.
“The ‘Pink Jack concept’ is a really fun idea and I am delighted to be lending my support to a cause as important for women as Breast Cancer awareness.”
