Calling All Local Companies to Take a Gamble on Charity

Share Article

On March 13th 2005 at Hollywood Park, Spunka Inc., a local events resource agency here in Los Angeles, is hosting its 1st annual one of a kind team-based Texas HoldÂ?em poker tournament. Proceeds will benefit Save the Children USA and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Spunka, Inc. is calling on local businesses and entrepreneurs to step up to the plate, I mean table, to take part in this philanthropic and team building group poker challenge. This is not your ordinary tournament or charity event. There will be separate tournaments for amateurs and professionals all playing in teams with prizes ranging from gender-specific team prizes to a 2-night stay at a Las Vegas Mega-Resort and of course cold hard cash!

Unlike other sponsorships, Spunka is not asking for money to organize the event; sponsors are instead asked to donate to charity and offer raffle or team prizes to receive recognition for their involvement.

Spunka’s vision is to have various LA groups like LA entrepreneurs and businesses come network at this truly unique networking event. This is an event where local businesses can get their products and services out there while supporting two great causes. Attendees will have fun playing or learning Texas Hold’em and have the opportunity to compete in Spunka’s first ever group Battle of the Sexes competition.

This is not such a gamble after all; participants are giving back to the community and having fun meeting people.
