EOC Kiwanis Poker
Ever feel like you have a need to help kids and moms around the world but just didn’t know how? Well sit back folks, here is an answer to your dilemma that also includes a healthy serving of BBQ, booze, and cards flying. The Kiwanis Club of East Orange County (#EOCKiwanis) is hosting it’s quarterly charity poker night on November 1 to benefit The Eliminate Project which is an international service project in partnership with UNICEF to help get rid of maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT). The event is $60 which will get you chips, 4 Rivers BBQ, unlimited beer and wine, and a shot at the big table for a $500 prize.

As we don’t see MNT here in the states, it might be a little surprising to know that there is something out there taking away 60,000 kids a year that can be stopped through some basic soap and water practices and a set of three $0.80 vaccination shots. The effects of the disease are excruciating — tiny newborns suffer repeated, painful convulsions and extreme sensitivity to light and touch. More info on the progress and project here.

So if you like saving kids, eating BBQ, and enjoying some adult beverages, all while playing poker, you can register here. Did I mention you get an extra $10 in chips of you come in costume?

Like a significant portion of the Floridian populace I am a carpet bagging New Jersey transplant who likes to visit the cold but also gets a slightly warped pleasure out of posting pictures of myself in December wearing shorts knowing my northern brethren will see them while waiting for their car windows to thaw. A proud UCF graduate (Go Knights), Marching Knight alum, and now also a boomerang student in the masters program for training and simulation, I do actually bleed black and gold (Doc said that isn't normal btw). One weekend a month and a couple of weeks a year I am proud to go by the title Gunnery Sergeant (yes, the same rank as the DI in Full Metal Jacket) as a member of the Marine Corps Reserve. I currently work as a Subject Matter Expert of Military Training for AVT Simulation translating grunt (affectionate term for military speak) into engineer in an effort to make simulators to train our men and women in uniform. In my free time, I work with a number of non-profit and volunteer groups, run a number of miles that often results in friends telling me to buy a car, and enjoy time with my wonderful wife and three amazing kids. I also have a cat and turtle, but they are rather boring and not worth much discussion.
