On Thursday, December 6th, 2018, strategy and chance met head to head at our 8th annual Texas Hold'Em & Casino Night. The event took place at the lovely Roosevelt Hotel in the center of Manhattan. Players and supporters alike came out to benefit the mission of St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters.

Claudia Bertolino, the head of business development at CITCO Fund Services (USA) Inc was the Guest of Honor - and our first female honoree! - while Dwight 'Doc' Gooden (Former NY Mets and NY Yankees pitcher) and Otis Anderson (New York Giants Super Bowl XXV MVP) were our Special Guests. This year, Bill Evans (meteorologist, WABC) was the Celebrity Auctioneer for our live auction.

Some wonderful prizes and a world-class buffet helped set the mood of the event. Not only does our annual Texas Hold ‘Em & Casino Night feature a Las Vegas-inspired parlor featuring dice and cards, the silent auction features some truly one-of-a-kind memorabilia, graciously provided by Eagle Sports Promotions.
