OREFIELD, September 16, 2010 – Attendees will time travel to 1940’s Morocco when KidsPeace presents “An Evening in Club Casablanca” Saturday, Oct. 2 at the KidsPeace Orchard Hills Campus, Orefield.  Cocktails are at 5:30; dinner is at 7 p.m.

            This year’s gala will feature décor, food and drinks all inspired by the classic Academy-award winning movie starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman.  The big band sounds of Steve Lippia and his 10-piece orchestra will perform “Simply Sinatra” and the evening will include a casino, silent auction and a raffle for a luxurious trip to Morocco.

            Gala honorees for 2010 are J. Jackson Eaton III, attorney with Gross McGinley, and Robert and Susan Allen, long time supporters of KidsPeace.  Simply Smooth of Allentown is catering and staging the event.
