Since 2015, our ever-growing community of donors comes together on a night in October to eat, drink, and play poker all in the name of sustaining our mission to improve the lives of Ugandan children and their families.

“The evening is shaping up to be a blast, with a great mix of sports stars, poker champions and people who love to have fun for a great cause.” said Harriet Zaffoni, founder of LAHU-USA. “We are looking forward to some competitive poker playing—but if that’s not your game, we also have blackjack!” 

It goes beyond poker: with every ticket purchased, every table sponsored, every donation made - our organization can do even more by sponsoring more programs, fostering more schools and helping more of those who need it. 

The benefit will be held at Kellogg’s NYC, 31 East 17th Street, from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Cards fly at 7:00 p.m. For sponsorship opportunities please email
