Tis the Season for Giving! Sante Fe Station is holding a charity event on December 19 to benefit the Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots along with Fueled by the Fallen. The Marine Toys for Tots foundation has supported the Toys for Tots since 1991. The Fueled by Fallen is a much newer charity, but of no less importance. Fueled by the Fallen supports our military members, public safety personnel and their families in their emotional, physical, and financial recovery needs by displaying and racing the memorial race cars with the names and ranks of those that have died serving our country during tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. Visit www.fbtgf.org to learn more about this worthy cause.
This event will begin at 2 p.m. with a $65 buy-in plus one new unwrapped toy, or a $10 cash donation to Toys for Tots. Players will start with 4,000 in chips and for an optional $5 staff appreciation buy-in, players will receive an additional 2,000 in chips. Entry is broken down as follows: $10 to Fueled by the Fallen, a small fee for the dealers, and the rest to the prize pool.
There are no administration fees taken out of this event. The Marines will be on hand to collect the toys. No child should go without a toy on Christmas day so please join me on December 19 to provide a little happiness for some unfortunate but deserving children.
