WILKES-BARRE, Pennsylvania – A game night in Lucerne County had one purpose – to find a cure for pediatric brain cancer.

Little Eric’s Foundation hosted a casino night at the Holiday Inn near Wilkes-Barre.

Players played blackjack, poker, and roulette.

The Little Eric’s Foundation was founded by Eric and Jessica Speicher of West Pittston.

Her son, affectionately called Little E, passed away in 2013.

“People know why they’re here and what we’re doing it for, but to get out as a group and enjoy each other’s company again in an environment like this where people are having a good time, we all do it for one for good reason, “said Eric and Jessica Speicher.

All of the proceeds will go towards the travel and medical expenses of children currently undergoing cancer treatment.
