St. Paul, Minn. - Justin Morneau, in conjunction with the Minnesota Twins and the Arthritis Foundation Upper Midwest Region (AFUMR), will host the fifth annual Justin Morneaus Casino Night. This event will take place Sunday, June 2 from 6 10 p.m. at International Market Square in Minneapolis.
The event will feature games, hors doeuvres and a cocktail hour. All guests will have the opportunity to play a hand of cards with their favorite Twins player and participate in a silent and live auction. This years event will also feature medical honoree, Dr. Scott Anseth, Medical Director of Total Joint Replacement Center at Abbott Northwestern Hospital and AFUMR board member.
The Morneaus niece was diagnosed with arthritis six years ago. When Madelyn was only two years old, she developed a red and swollen hand and had difficulty with everyday activities like buttoning or zipping her clothes. Shortly after, a pediatric rheumatologist diagnosed her with polyarticular arthritis and uveitis.
Madelyn has since settled into a routine of taking a shot once a week, along with additional medication and eye drops. Her strength and courage is inspiring.
Funds raised support educational and therapeutic programs for children and adults living with arthritis including a family support group, newsletters, and scholarships for Camp M.A.S.H. (Make Arthritis Stop Hurting) and the Juvenile Arthritis Conference.

Created as a multi-disciplinary, total theater experience that invites audience participation, Mohona relates stories and layers images of womens work and lives in relation to water to reflect and pose questions about access to this natural resource and the systemic violence against people that results when it is subject to private control.
The stories in Mohona recall and celebrate historic struggles, pain, determination, and courage. Here, water is both material, quenching thirst, and metaphor, signifying flow, femininity, and resistance. The performance space is imagined as an estuary located at the confluence of multiple marine flows, rich in possibilities where dancers layer breath, movement, and voice to explore the themes.
Schedule and Tickets:
Two performances of Mohona will be offered at 8pm, Friday, Sept. 20, and Saturday, Sept. 21. The run-time is approximately 90 minutes without intermission.
Tickets: $27, $22, and $17 for adults; $2 off for seniors and children, and alumni, faculty, and staff of St. Catherine University and University of Minnesota. $10 day of event rush for college and high school students.
Tickets will go on sale May 6, 2013. Call The OShaughnessy at 651.690.6700 or visit www.theoshaughnessy.com.
The OShaughnessy is located on the campus of St. Catherine University at 2004 Randolph Avenue, St. Paul, Minnesota 55105
There'll be food, games, a silent auction, pull tabs and more!
