The annual event is back on November 4th, 2017 and promises to be a fun filled afternoon! The Odd Fellow Poker Invitational Fundraiser brings 75-90 players each year for an opportunity to show off their skills while raising money for an organization or family in need. In partnership with our event partners, this is a fun and full day of mixing the local community together and making new friends.
The big tournament prize? Bragging rights that you helped such a great cause… and that you beat everyone else.
This year, Columbia Lodge #2 is once again joining forces with Bastion Lodge #4 and we are working with the Island Kids Cancer Association (IKCA). The IKCA’s CARE 4 Kids program strives to strengthen family connections and let kids be kids. By providing personal connection, individual support and linkages to community programs we aim to transform each child’s experience from anxiety and isolation to one of support and hope. You can learn more about IKCA by visiting their website here: https://www.ikca.ca
The event also includes a silent auction to raise additional funds for other local Odd Fellows charities. If you are interested corporate sponsorship of this event or making a donation to the silent auction, please contact Russ Campbell at email@example.com.
*Tax receipts will be issued by the Coast to Coast Against Cancer Foundation for a portion of the entry fee in compliance with Canadian tax laws governing charity events. Simply put, the rules say we can’t give you a tax receipt for the full amount because we feed you and provide with you a great time!
