9th Annual BORP Poker Slam, Feb. 4th, 2012

Hello Friends of BORP,
On February 4th, 2012, the Bay Area Outreach and Recreation Program (BORP) will host the 9th ANNUAL BORP POKER SLAM to support BORP’s Power Soccer athletes.
We are looking forward to an exciting “No Limit Texas Hold’ Em” tournament, just as you’ve seen on television (ok, maybe similar!). This fun-filled event will be held at Scott’s Seafood Restaurant in Oakland from 5:30pm -11:00pm. No experience is necessary to play.
BORP is a non-profit organization that provides sports and recreation programs for youths and adults with physical disabilities. Since 1988, BORP has introduced hundreds of people who use power wheelchairs to the exciting, ever growing sport of Power Soccer.

Our goal is to raise enough funds through this event to enable all our players, age 9-42 years, many of whom are low income, to be able to travel and fully participate in all competitions, including a national level tournament held in June.

 How can you help?
We would like to invite you to participate in our event through:

Playing or sponsoring a player in the Poker Slam ($100). Registration Form attached
making a donation of prizes, raffle or silent auction items.
contacting your friends to play and/or helping spread the word about the Poker Slam. Flier attached.


To make arrangements for a  donation, please contact Jonathan Newman at 510-225-7032 or: jonathan@borp.org

On behalf of the players, families, and community of BORP, thank you in advance for your generosity,


Thanks to these Slam sponsors and prize donors (more to come)
