VIDEO: Vegas comes to Palo Alto

 

This year's Palo Alto Black & White Ball featured a Vintage Las Vegas theme that included blackjack tables, a poker room and a roulette wheel to go with live music and dancing. Singer and Dean Martin impersonator Matt Helm performed, as did Foreverland, a 14-piece Michael Jackson tribute band.

The benefit event was held Saturday night, Sept. 29, at the Lucie Stern Community Center. It happens every other year and usually attracts about a thousand attendees, organizers said. Proceeds go to Palo Alto schools and community groups such as the Palo Alto Library Foundation, Partners in Education (PiE) and Youth Community Service (YCS).

Sponsored by casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, just like Mitt Romney?
