Puff’n'holdem VI — making dreams come true…

Thursday, May 17th, 2007

$280 in support of Support for Families of Children with Disabilities (SFCD). Well done!

Puff’n'sip’s own Senior Intern took the pot. I’ve never seen her so happy. I had a quote from the winner prepared last night, something about dreams-come-true and ‘I am so happy I can cry’, but I forgot it.

So here is the PR release quote:
“I couldn’t have won without the help of my friends: Stas, for never believing I could do it (made me want to win even more); Andrew Cheung for going “all in” on the second hand; Yung, for going “all in” on the last hand against my winning combination of super low cards; and last (but not least), Anastasia, our friendly bar lass, who leant me her lucky pair of Channel sunglasses…frankly, I think the bling blinded the competition!” — Senior Intern, May 17, 2007.

Thanks again to all who played or donated! You rock!

Lotsa love,
The Management.

Puff’n'holdem VI is here! That’s SIX, people!…

Coming straight at you this Wednesday, May 16 2007, Puff’n'holdem VI has a lot of promise and will include a warm up and free lessons from your own AC and JB. Also, you can donate without sitting down at the table, donate with credit cards, donate your car, donate equity and trust moneys. Donate.

“Donate to who?” – GB might ask. Well, Puff’n'holdem VI winnings will go to …

Support for Families of Children with Disabilities (SFCD)
SFDC is a parent-run San Francisco-based nonprofit organization founded in 1982. We support families of children with any kind of disability or special health care need as they face challenges.

SFCD Vision:
Families of children with disabilities will have the information, resources and support they need to make informed choices for their children.

SFCD Mission:
Our purpose is to ensure that families of children with any kind of disability or special health care need have the knowledge and assistance they need to make informed choices that support their child’s health, education, and development. We provide peer support to families, and information and education to families, professionals and the community at large.

Now, rules are the same:

  • Texas Holdem tournament.
  • $20 gets you a seat at the table. You can sit down as many times as you can afford.
  • Winner takes all and turns it over to charity.

The plan, however, is slightly different. We start @

5:11 PM @ Old Ship Saloon, 298 Pacific Ave (@ Battery)

and kick off Puff’n’holdem @

7:31 PM @ Cigar Bar and Grill, 850 Montgomery (@ Jackson).
