This action-packed evening chaired by Lance and Christina Funston and co-chairs Caryn and James Biehl and Joanne and Christopher Hogg on Thursday, April 10, 2014 at The Hub Cira Center will begin with registration at 6 pm and cocktails and a dinner buffet at 6:30 pm, followed by poker and blackjack until midnight. Professional dealers and a blind structure make this the most fun-filled charity event in Philadelphia. Proceeds support Save A Mind Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that assists low-income, urban youth in grades 5-8 to stay in school with its innovative Win/Win Program and complete high school. Win/Win provides 1,500 students with the motivation and support they need to succeed in school, and in life. Two additional schools will be added in the fall to serve 2,500 students in Philadelphia and Trenton whose odds are stacked against them.
An Event Sponsorship is $5,000, and includes 20 guest tickets, on site signage, two tables (16 players), acknowledgement in the Save A Mind Foundation newsletter, and acknowledgement in the press release. Table Sponsorships are $1,750 for poker and blackjack for eight people. Player tickets are $250 and a guest ticket is $100, which includes blackjack play. Join us to Save A Mind – and a chance to win a $10,000 in cash and prizes! A Royal Flush wins a Porsche Panamera.
