H&R Block will hold a “Crab Feed/Prime Rib Dinner and Casino Night” on Friday, January 11 to benefit the Make-A Wish Foundation of Sacramento. The event begins at 6 p.m. at the Dante Club, 2330 Fair Oaks Boulevard in Sacramento. Make-A-Wish grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions in the United States and its territories.
“H&R Block associates strive every day to make a difference in people's lives; whether it's at the tax desk or in their community,” says Brian Pegram, H&R Block regional marketing manager. “At H&R Block, we put a premium on being a good corporate citizen. We're proud of the rich philanthropic tradition established by our founders, Henry and Richard Bloch, and work to honor their legacies through our ongoing philanthropic endeavors.”
“We appreciate the support of H&R Block and thank them for organizing this event to raise much-needed funds to help us fulfill wishes for children with severe medical conditions in Sacramento,” says Patti Coakley, Ambassador of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. “The commitment shown by H&R Block to our organization is deeply meaningful.”
H&R Block’s continuing support of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Sacramento was also demonstrated through its title event sponsorship of the Make-A-Wish Foundation 13th Annual Walk for Wishes held in May 2012.
Casino activities will include a poker tournament, Texas Hold ’em, roulette, craps table and more. Live entertainment will be provided by TOOmuch Fiction and the Sacramento King’s Dancers.
The “No-Host” Bar opens at 6 p.m. Dinner is served at 6:30 p.m. And the casino opens at 7 p.m. All proceeds benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Sacramento.
