One week from today, Deschutes Brewery in Bend is holding a Texas Hold ‘Em Poker Tournament Fundraiser and Silent Auction to raise money for two employees who were recently diagnosed with cancer. The event will take place on Wednesday, March 5, from 5:30 to 10pm at the Pub Tap Room (the upstairs portion). Here are the details:
Two employees from our Deschutes Brewery Family have been diagnosed with Cancer. In order to help Chris [Steavens] and Misael [Molina], we are having a Texas Hold ‘Em Tournament Fundraiser & Silent Auction. All proceeds will go towards Chris and Misael’s growing medical expenses.
Buy-in is $50 and includes dinner, (3) beer tokens, & (2) raffle tickets. Also, there will be sweet Deschutes Brewery swag raffled throughout the night!
1st place receives a $200 cash purse
2nd place receives a case of beer a month for 1 year
3rd place receives a $75 gift card to our Pub
Don’t want to play but want to watch and hang out?
Suggested donation entry fee is $20 which includes food and 1 raffle ticket
You can pre-purchase tickets for the event here, as well as make a donation to help the fundraising.
And the silent auction should be offering up some pretty great items too; I know for a fact there will be at least two vertical flights of The Abyss, 2007-2009, available, and I would expect other similarly-epic auction items.
