Texas Hold ‘Em Fundraiser in Memory of Brian Frank

Brian FrankCOME OUT & PLAY: TEXAS HOLD’EM FUND RAISER FOR EHE CANCER RESEARCH IN MEMORY OF OUR SO LOVED AND MISSED, ALWAYS IN OUR HEART ……BRIAN FRANK

Saturday, August 29 at 12:30pm in PDT

20838 SE 240th St. Maple Valley WA 98038

EHE or Epithelioid Hemangioendothelioma is a extremely rare vascular cancer that only effects 100 people a year worldwide. It is very hard to diagnose due to the fact it is so rare. Many doctors have never even heard of it. Dr. Brian Rubin of the Cleveland Clinic is the only doctor that is actively studying EHE. He relies only on donations to fund his research.

Brian Frank passed away in September from this horrible cancer, he was only 28! He was sick for 6 months and not one doctor could tell him what he had. Unfortunately he passed before he was diagnosed. Autopsy showed that he had EHE. Brian’s tissue samples have been sent to Dr. Rubin. He is actively studying them in hopes to get some answers about EHE.

Every amount donated will greatly help another young person with EHE! I know Brian would love if we could help someone else and possibly save lives

GAME RULES:

Winnings will be divided depending on how many people play. Example: with 50 players we can expect $1,000 in prize money. We also hope to have some gift cards & prizes to be included for winners. Each player starts with 5000 in chips, blinds start at 25/50 and go up every 20 minutes. Re-buys will be allowed for a set period of time. 100% of re-buys goes to the cause. This should allow for steady action. After the main tournament is over, additional single table ‘loser’ tournaments can form if there is interest (same format as above). Message us if you have any questions.

1. Charlie & Kendy will be supplying all the hamburgers, brats, hotdogs you can eat and we will have water bottles too!

3. Please if you can….bring a appetizer to share. For example: chips & salsa, hotwings, cheese dips, your favorite yummy appetizer. We need this to keep everyone full of energy for the long day and night.
