Last weekend, we hosted the 6th Annual Casino and Poker Night Fundraiser, benefiting the Oakland Warthogs, empowered by Play Rugby USA! Thanks to all of our generous sponsors and attendees, it was the most successful one yet. The money raised will cover costs for the upcoming season and allow us to continue our efforts to expand the Warthogs program to more young people in Oakland.
Everyone had a great time and the night truly exceeded expectations. Guests were even treated to a fantastic performance of the Haka from the Warthogs. Special shout out to Synthia, our Operations Manager in San Francisco, for being an absolute Try Maker and playing such an integral role in the success of the event.
Check out this video, featuring the Oakland Warthogs, and you can see the incredible impact that this program is having on young people in Oakland!
Our next fundraising event on the West Coast will take place in Sonoma County! We’ll be hosting an intimate gathering at Goldschmidt Winemaker’s Vineyard on Friday September 15th. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
