Eaves to host fundraising poker tournament
Join us for a night of poker and raise money for Eaves
On Thursday 18th October 2012, Eaves will be hosting the first ever poker event to raise money for women who have experienced violence. This exciting tournament of Texas Hold’Em Poker for beginners and enthusiasts alike will be taking place at the trendy Distillers bar near the City.
The evening will kick-off at 6pm with a drinks reception, and the knock-out poker tournament will commence at 7pm. Enthusiasts can expect some great poker, beginners will be given an introductory session before they play at 6:30pm, and non-players can take advantage of the music, magic and comedy on the night.
We expect a sprinkling of some well known faces from the world of TV and film to join us for this fundraising event and there will be plenty of time for guests to mingle and to enjoy some delicious canapés and bowl food. Drinks all night are included in the ticket as well as a generous 1000 poker chips for the main tournament.
One of our star prizes is an event seat at the prestigious Irish Winter Festival (IWF) Main Event in Dublin on 27th – 29th October 2012, worth €1,125 generously donated by paddypowerpoker.com. If you are a beginner don’t worry – you will also be in with a chance to win some fantastic prizes on the night, including some great getaway holidays.
There will also be beginner side tables and casino games for those who get knocked out of the tournament.
Fundraising Manager, Laura Bassett says…
“This poker event will be a great evening; I’m a novice poker player but I’ve been working on my poker face so that I can be convincing. What I’m really looking forward to is a night of poker where there will be more than one winner; those that come along to enjoy the game as well as Eaves and the women that they support.”
