The agents, managers and staff of Better Homes and Gardens Mason-McDuffie Real Estate, in partnership with the World Transformation Center (WTC), will host a Charity Poker Tournament on Friday, April 26 to benefit The Children’s Village of Sonoma County. The event is open to the public, and will be held at Zio Fraedo’s Restaurant in Pleasant Hill.
A raffle will be held, and tickets are now on sale to the public. The lucky winner of the Grand Prize will receive one month’s paid mortgage, up to $5,000, donated by Land Home Financial. “We are happy to support this wonderful cause and hope that this donation will make a difference in someone’s life,” said Brad Waite, president, Land Home Financial.
This is the second annual Charity Poker Tournament hosted by Mason-McDuffie. In 2012, the company raised $75,000 for The Children’s Village. Kathy Ollerton, Director of Charities for Mason-McDuffie, looks forward to making another sizable donation to this worthwhile organization in 2013.
“This great charity establishes a stable, family-like setting for children in foster care, minimizing the upheaval and disruption of multiple placements, and providing the opportunity for siblings from all over the Bay Area to grow up together,” said Ollerton.
Tickets are $66 per person, and include dinner. Check-in and lessons begin at 5:30. The event is open to the public, and will be held at Zio Fraedo’s Restaurant, at 611 Gregory Lane in Pleasant Hill.
