On Saturday, February 27, 2016 BORP will host the 13th Annual Poker Slam at the Ed Roberts Campus, 3075 Adeline St., Berkeley. The Poker Slam is a fund-raising “Texas Hold’ em” tournament to support the BORP Power Soccer Program.
BORP’s Power Soccer Program started in 1988 and was the first power soccer program in the USA. During that time we have provided hundreds of powerchair users with opportunities to participate, compete and excel as athletes.
A highlight of 2015 was being featured in a GoPro Youtube video! To learn more about BORP Power Soccer, view the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5A12baiB9s
We invite you to support BORP Power Soccer by registering to play in the Poker Slam and/or by making a tax-deductible donation of money or prizes (for the poker tournament or the raffle). All the money that is raised is used to help our athletes with the considerable equipment and travel expenses of participation.
Food and nonalcoholic drink are included in the ticket purchase. There will be a cash bar and raffle tickets for sale as well.
The top prize for this year’s Poker Slam winner is two premium Giants tickets to a 2016 game!
See you at the Slam!
