On October 18, 2016, Preferred Client Services team participated in the second annual Charity Poker Tournament and Silent Auction presented by BNI Premiere at the Yellowhead Casino. Seventy participants at the Poker tables and about twenty items donated for the Silent Auction raised about $6,000 to support BNI Alberta North Teacher’s Program and Easter Seals.
A big thanks goes out to the Preferred Client Services Team members that helped in making this event successful! From their testimonies we can tell how fun the night was:
“What an exciting night! Congratulations to Nicholas Khaw for winning for the second year in a row!
It was wonderful to be part of an event which supports two amazing causes; Teachers & Easter Seals. Visiting and a little healthy competition thrown in definitely made for a great night. Brad Richardson of BNI Premier did a great job of organizing and hosting the event, which ran smoothly with the support of great helpers.
For myself, participation in the tournament, and making it half way through the second round, was an accomplishment from last year. Hopefully, with enough practice, I can make it a little further next year! I look forward to participating again!”
“What a great night! Not only did I meet more business contacts, I also got to reconnect with so many more BNI members from other Chapters around the city. It was exciting to see so many familiar faces. I am honoured to say I am a part of the ever growing BNI Alberta North Family.
As the last woman standing, in a 4-way “All-In” hand, I am proud to say I took home 10th place out of 70 players registered. Even though I didn’t actually sit at the “Final Table”, I placed there!”
