Poker night is a lot of fun when you hang out with friends, have food and drinks, and have a great time. But on May 2, you can have poker night at one of the premier steakhouse chains in the country, all while supporting Make-A-Wish Northeastern California and Northern Nevada.

The 8th Annual Texas Hold’Em Tournament is a benefit event for Make-A-Wish Northeastern California and Northern Nevada. It’s held at Morton’s The Steakhouse (621 Capitol Mall, Sacramento).

Participate in “Tournament Style Play” at one of the many tables. Earn chips to exchange for great prizes. If you get busted don’t worry about it: Re-buys and ad-ons will be available. Tickets to play in the event are $250 each until May 1, or $275 the day of. Spectator tickets are $125 each. Morton’s The Steakhouse will include an open bar and food during the entire tournament. Bring your appetite along with your lucky charm! Reservations are limited.

Help Make-A-Wish Grow

The Wishing Place in Sacramento is one of only four such places in the country, and the only one on the West Coast. The Wishing Place opened in 2009 and is a place where children can escape the rigors of their treatments and never-ending tests. The Wishing Place has become a reality. It is a building created especially for wish children. The magic begins the moment a child enters the front door with a “Galaxy of Stars” that shines above with colored stars each commemorating a special wish child. The child then proceeds to “The Wishing Room” where wish decisions are made. After that, “The Wishing Tower” is opened and the dream begins.

When you attend the Texas Hold’em Tournament and other Make-A-Wish Northeastern California and Northern Nevada events, you help make the dreams that come from The Wishing Place a reality.

Help Make-A-Wish, Even If You Can’t Attend

There are ways you can help Make-A-Wish Northeastern California and Northern Nevada, without going to the Texas Hold’em Tournament. One way is to donate airline miles to help send Wish Kids and their families on their wish trips. Another way is to donate an unwanted vehicle to Wheels For Wishes benefiting Make-A-Wish Northeastern California and Northern Nevada. Donating a vehicle helps kids in Reno, Modesto and Stockton. But it also saves you time and money that you would otherwise spend on getting rid of an unwanted vehicle. That unwanted vehicle will be transformed into a wish for a local child and gives you a great tax deduction at the same time. Wheels For Wishes is an IRS-registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and your donation is 100 percent tax deductible. Your car can make a wish come true!

To donate a vehicle to Wheels For Wishes, please call us at 1-877-431-9474, or fill out our easy onlineĀ vehicle donation form. You will feel great about what your old car can do for a local child!
