Press Release: Sacramento Non Profit Organization Hosts 3rd Annual Poker Tournament
Following the success of its first two poker tournaments, The Danny Oliver Foundation will host its 3rd Annual Poker Tournament on Saturday, September 15, 2018. The Danny Oliver Foundation was established in 2015 to help rebuild trust and unity among law enforcement agencies and the communities that they serve.
Founder of The Danny Oliver Foundation, Susan Oliver, says “I couldn’t be more excited for the opportunity to host our 3rd Annual Poker Tournament! Each year we have a great turnout and amazing community support. This year is planned to be even greater!” The foundation was started by Susan Oliver, widow of slain Sacramento Sheriff Deputy Danny Oliver with hopes of turning tragedy into a positive by building an organization that will provide training, education and outreach opportunities.
Over the last two years the Foundation has been successful in awarding $17,000 in scholarships and grants, with a goal of awarding another $10,000 in 2018. Funds raised at this event will go towards the The Scholarship Fund for The Danny Oliver Foundation. The Foundation gives scholarships and grants to youth entering in to the law enforcement profession. Scholarships are awarded to students interested in the profession from diverse areas all around the Sacramento Valley. The Foundation encourages young adults to think about giving back to the communities they grew up in by becoming a First Responder.
The 3rd Annual Poker Tournament will be held at Mission Oaks Community Center in Gibbons Park located at 4701 Gibbons Drive, Carmichael, CA 95608. Guests are welcome to dress comfortably and bring their poker faces. Doors open at 6pm with the tournament starting at 7pm. The silent auction and raffle prizes will feature unique experiences and donations from local vendors.
The poker tournament buy-in is $75 with the opportunity to re-buy for $50 until the final round. Seats are first-come, first-serve and prizes will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners. Tickets for the event can be purchased online at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-danny-oliver-foundation-poker-night-tickets-48476499515.
All proceeds from the 3rd Annual Poker Tournament will benefit the The Scholarship Fund for The Danny Oliver Foundation. Through this event, guests can help raise funds as contributions that will have incredible impact on the lives of the youth entering into the law enforcement profession.
The Danny Oliver Foundation is a Section 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
