This is an easy and fun way to win an iPad either for yourself or as a gift and support The Village while you do it. Only 52 chances will be sold, so your odds of winning this tablet valued at $500 are pretty good. Well worth an investment of $35 per chance.
And you don't even need to know how to play poker to win. Here's all you need to do:
Go online to the Mardi Gras Poker page
on the Village Gala web site, read the instructions and scroll down to reserve up to three tickets for our Mardi Gras Poker event at the Gala. Because this is a game of chance, we can't sell tickets for it online, but on the web site, you can reserve up to three chances that you will pay for when you arrive at the Gala. And, if they have not sold out by Sept. 12, you will be able to buy more Mardi Gras Poker chances at the Gala.
Here's how the game will be played. At the Gala, the emcee will ask a volunteer to select a single card from a deck of 52. If that card is yours, you'll win the iPad, and have some fun along the way, too.
And while you're at it, buy your Gala tickets and tickets to our exclusive Village Salons on the site while they are still available.
If you cannot access the Web, please call the Village office during regular business hours at 202-333-1327 to arrange to buy tickets to the Gala and reserve your Mardi Gras Poker chances.
The Gala will be from 7 to 10 pm on Saturday, Sept. 12 at The Field School in northwest DC.
