Hello everyone! This will be a busy week for all of us. Let me start by saying that one of my favorite places, Maryland Live! Casino, has a special way of giving back to the community through the Casey Cares Foundation, a foundation that benefits critically-ill children served by Casey Cares and is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit that provides personalized, uplifting programs with a special touch to  these children and family members throughout six states. The programs include: family festivals, celebration vacations, birthday blasts, Kami’s Jammies, Caring Connection and group parties. On Sept. 21, at the{ Rams Head Center Stage }at Maryland Live! Casino,  they will have their 11th  Annual Rock ‘n  Roll Bash. Guests can party the night away and meet the band members up close and personal. Musicians from world renowned bands jam for one night.
