300 Central Floridians Gamble for Charity

Published on
Drawing a crowd of 300 people, 110 of which participated in the main poker tournament with celebrity poker player Jon Heneghen, Clearwater’s Community Learning Center’s “Casino Night” has been declared a resounding success.
 
The event was held on the campus of PostcardMania, a Clearwater-based direct mail company that services thousands of small businesses around the country.
 
“It was amazing!” says Joy Gendusa, Founder and CEO of PostcardMania. “The turnout actually exceeded my expectations and the execution of the event was flawless. Our volunteers put together an incredible event, and, most importantly, we were able to raise money to complete renovations on the Community Learning Center’s new building! Executive Director Holly Haggerty and her team have raised the grade levels of more than 4,000 children in the last 10 years and I’m thrilled to be able to help in any way I can.”
 
Both the Community Learning Center and PostcardMania would like to thank those who came out in support of the event and the volunteers whose hard wok made the event possible.
