Push to Walk Set to Host Casino Night/Poker Tournament

Oakland, NJ – Push to Walk, a non-profit organization that provides individualized workouts and resources to people with spinal cord injuries and other forms of paralysis, will host their 10th Annual Casino Night featuring a Texas Hold ‘Em Poker Tournament, roulette and blackjack on the first Saturday in April.

Taking place at the Route 23 Auto Mall in Butler, New Jersey on April 6, 2019, the tournament entry fee is $150 for poker players, $75 for roulette and blackjack players, and $50 for spectators (poker entry fee and roulette and blackjack entry fees will increase by $25 after March 31, 2019 so register early!). All entry fees include a buffet dinner, wine and beer. Players who register online at www.pushtowalknj.org will receive a 1,000 chip bonus. The organization is running a special deal for its second consecutive year, which offers a $50 discounted tournament entry to any 2018 Casino Night participant with the commitment of a registering newcomer. Doors open at 6:30PM, and the first card will be dealt at 8:00PM.
The top ten tournament players who make it to the final table will share $5000 in VISA gift cards and other prizes. Those that participate as roulette or blackjack players will have the opportunity to win from another selection of prizes. The event will also include a 50/50 raffle for players and spectators to enjoy. “Casino Night is always a fun evening and we are looking forward to the addition of roulette and blackjack at this year’s event. We recognize that not everyone plays poker and wanted to have an option for others to enjoy,” said Vivian Kiggins, Executive Director at Push to Walk.
Push to Walk’s clients pay an hourly fee for personalized training. These fees do not fully cover operating expenses. The balance is obtained through fundraising activities, grants and donations. Funds raised through events like Casino Night help the organization offset expenses and focus on providing the highest quality program to the paralysis community.

Push to Walk uses exercise trainers certified in methods known to help people regain strength, function and independence and provide one-on-one workouts to their clients. This program is unique to the area and is the only one in New York/New Jersey.

Sponsorship and donation opportunities are available on the Push to Walk website: www.pushtowalknj.org. For more information, please contact Stephanie Lajam at (201)644-7567 or slajam@pushtowalknj.org. Photos available upon request.
