For those of you who follow our blogs, you might remember that we mentioned donating a Texas Poker Store gift package for the silent auction at CARPOOL’S Gala. CARPOOL is a student-run organization that provides safe, non-judgmental rides on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights to any Texas A&M student who needs one. This amazing group of Aggies epitomizes selfless service and leadership, two of the university’s core values, and we were thrilled to be able to help them raise funds at their annual Gala.
We attended this elegant event on Saturday night and were impressed by everything, from the fantastic way they displayed the items in the auction to the inspiring stories shared by the members of CARPOOL as they addressed their enthusiastic audience. And, we were delighted that our package, which included a folding poker table top, and assorted poker accessories was won by a poker-playing Aggie, who won the prize with what was ultimately the second highest bid for any package in the silent auction. Thanks, CARPOOL, for the incredible service you do for our community.
