VENICE, Fla., June 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Aston Gardens At Pelican Pointe, a luxury senior living community located in Venice, FL presented a check for $14,000 to Operation Second Chance, a citizens organization committed to serving wounded, injured and ill veterans. The donated funds will be used to support ongoing humanitarian efforts, as well as to increase public awareness about the many sacrifices made by members of the US Armed Forces.

As part of coordinated efforts to raise money in support of US veterans, Aston Gardens At Pelican Pointe earmarked proceeds from its 10th Annual Dice & Diamonds charity event for the cause. The Dice & Diamonds event features various Las Vegas-style casino games, a gourmet, chef-prepared dinner, and exquisite ice sculptures.
