This Thursday, come to a Texas Hold ‘Em Fundraiser in honor of the Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation. The CBTF is hosting the poker tournament on Thursday, and all proceeds go to the charity. The buy-in’s $250, or $75 for the food and drink but no poker, and you can get those tickets here. Winners can get some pretty impressive prizes, including a grand prize of a golf round at legendary Shackamaxon Country Club or Montclair Golf Club, and 9 other prizes that include vacation packages, a signed Knicks basketball, and an iPad Air. And you won’t feel bad if (when?) you lose all your money gambling, because it’s going to support teen and young adult brain tumor survivors. The CBTF is a fantastic organization that hosts an annual conference to support and educate sick children and their families, and this fundraiser helps kids get there. So whether you win or lose, you can feel pretty good about yourself.

Joonbug joined African Health Now (AHN) on Tuesday night (Feb. 18th) at Spur Tree, an intimate Lower East Side venue, for “cocktails and conversations.” The restaurant was alive with chatter, friendly hellos, and hugs.

They operate with both American and African volunteers who provide blood pressure testing, blood glucose screenings, dental consultations, and education on living a healthy lifestyle.
