This, is a serious Blackjack table in midtown Manhattan. Except not at all, because these people are having fun, and supporting kids who some day aspire to see the bright lights, but whose attention is focused on helping their own family, and themselves.
On the other side of the room, some Poker stars are vying to win all the chips, the pot, to establish their mastery of the game. Except that they are also having more fun than they’ve had since last year, when they played the same guys, and hit that river card for a flush, and knew that they were just lucky, but knew that they were helping the kids and their families, 7,000 miles away, in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
This is the Eighth annual Friends of Fresh and Green Casino Night and it happens at 7pm on Monday September 26th, 2016 at Connolly’s Pub Klub 45 on West 45th Street. You can be a part of this, in New York City, and help 200 kids conquer the cycle of poverty to learn and grow into providers for their families. Your advance $250 buy-in will get you $2,500 worth of chips ($275 after Sept. 17) and re-buys are available. Proceeds go to our Do You Believe in Miracles campaign to help the school buy the land it sits on and take control of its own financial destiny.
