Event description
Ladies Playing Poker for Charity. That's all.

About this Event

Happy New Year, ladies - we are excited to announce the return of our women's charity poker club, The Calamity Janes!

If you didn't join us at our two kick-off events in 2019 then you're probably receiving this note because you've heard bits and pieces about our club from your respective connections, however below are all the formalized details for you to get excited about!

For context, Queen's Club was started by Virginia Parker & Natalie Perkins Holden as a way to get some great women together to have some fun and raise some money for our local non-profit community here in Raleigh. Queen's Club is now a quarterly event that has raised thousands of dollars for charities statewide. Virginia and Natalie realized how popular this event was and after starting a Durham based club, they approached us in early 2019 about starting a "Lil' Queen's Club" for millennial age women!

So here we are - Hannah Parker, Lily Holden, Maggie Kane, Sarah Cunningham, and Susan Batchelor.. the Calamity Janes ;)

Our first 2020 poker night will be Thursday, March 12th at Barringer Construction from 6p - 8:30p!

We will have a taco bar and desserts for you to enjoy from 6-6:30p. Additionally, being that we are not at a bar for this month's event, please BYOB for those interested in drinking!

Our pitboss and dealers will kick the games off sharply at 6:30p and we will play until around 8:15p, the winner will be announced thereafter. The ante is $50 to play which will go to the winning lady's charity of choice!

Additionally, starting in 2020, we will also be collecting club dues. Dues will be $25 for the entire year so once you've paid yours, you don't have to worry about them until 2021. For reference, our dues cover the costs of administration, catering, table/linen rentals, poker equipment, and overall maintenance for our organization. That said, if this is your first time don't worry about the dues, just come and have fun! You can use promo code 'welcome' to remove the cost of the dues from your ticket price if it's your first poker night and you want to check everything out before committing - just let us know if you have any questions!

For those that have played poker before, we will be playing Texas Hold'em, and if you've never played... DON'T WORRY! We always go over all the rules & regulations before the games begin - and honestly, the newbies usually play better anyway so don't let being a rookie stop you from joining us :)

What you need to bring:

  • Your proof of ticket purchase and paid ante
  • An awesome poker name
  • The name of the charity you are playing for (very important!)
  • Wine, beer, or cider if you intend to drink (please drive responsibly, we will have a Lyft code for anyone who needs it!)
  • Extra cash just in case you want to purchase additional chips once you run out

*Finally, there is limited parking at Barringer so please utilize deck or street parking if you intend to drive.

Please feel free to email Lily at lilyvholden@gmail.com with any and all questions - we can't wait to see you all there!

xo,

Hannah, Lily, Maggie, Sarah, and Susan
