Charity Poker Night

30 Jan
2011

Put on your best poker face and head over to Vanderbilt Avenue’s Branded Saloon on Wednesday nights for a round of Texas Hold ‘Em for charity, benefiting many of Brooklyn’s awesome non-profit organizations. The games begin at 8pm (beginners round at 7pm, registration at 7:30) with a $15 buy-in. Proceeds from February 2nd, February 23rd and March 16 will all go to ioby, and the winnings will be divided among the following projects on ioby.org which are (not coincidentally) very close to the Branded Saloon:

Gardening with Tiny Tots Summer Program at Hattie Carthan
Sustainable Flatbush Church Ave Communal Garden Compost Project
Eating Healthy in Bed-Stuy
2nd Avenue Community Garden

Wednesday’s are the best nights to play poker, so lasso up some friends and get yourselves to Prospect Heights, Brooklyn.
