Poker for NAP Africa


Care to help out a good cause? All you have to do is play poker. Really.

At Bootlegger’s Brewery this Saturday from 5:30 to 10 p.m. you can join a charity poker event with proceeds benefiting an NAP Africa, an OC based non-profit based working to set up a medical clinic and preserve the Jabulani Village in Zimbabwe, Africa.

The Ndebele Art Project (NAP) is an organization made up of local O.C. women endeavoring to aid the villagers’ struggling community, which has been embattled with political unrest and economic devastation.

The Jabulani villagers of tradesmen and women are known worldwide for their “tall blondes”—15-foot giraffes carved from the local mucwa hardwood, but that art has virtually vanished.

You can reserve a seat today here.

Entry Tiers:
Playa: $50 poker tournament entry
Shark: $100 Poker tournament entry, NAP Africa custom wine bottle
Pro: $150 Poker tournament entry, VIP drink/snack table service, NAP custom wine bottle

BootLegger’s Brewery is at 401 S. Richman Ave. in Fullerton.
