Each month the bucket list club from Delaware Highlands Assisted Living fulfills one of the seniors bucket list wishes. The idea was derived from the film The Bucket List. At 78 years young, Sally Jones had one wish on her Bucket list, Viva Las Vegas.

Sally had always dreamed of going to Las Vegas with its neon flashing lights, one armed bandits and fortunes won on the turn of a deal. Sally’s eyes just danced as she spoke of the possibility of a Las Vegas’ adventure. Well, luck be a lady for Sally because DHAL with the assistance of Harrah’s Casino granted this wish.

And here’s how they did it… Sally was picked up with seven of her DHAL friends via limousine and whisked away to Harrah’s Casino in North Kansas City, Missouri. Upon her arrival to Harrah’s casino she was greeted like a high stakes roller with executive staff meeting her at her limo with a wealth of balloons, cheers and lots of well wishes that luck would be on her side. Sally was also treated, along with her friends, to the delicious buffet located inside Harrah’s. Lady luck was on Sally’s side because she came home the hero of her friends after a great day at the casino and she won at the slots. Way to go Sally!

Viva Las Vegas!
