The Cole Foundation, a client of ClaimLinx, is hosting its first Casino Night fundraiser in hopes of raising $10,000 towards its goal of providing healthcare services to underserved communities in its hometown of Houston and abroad.
The event will be held on September 21 in Spring, TX and will include raffle prizes and classic casino games like Roulette, Poker, Black Jack and Craps as well as drinks and hors d’oeuvres. ClaimLinx is sponsoring a game table for the event to show its support for the foundation.
The Cole Foundation is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to providing physical, occupational and speech therapy as well as nursing care to children, adults and seniors that are not able to receive that care through traditional healthcare means. It also acquires tools for mobility, such as braces, crutches or others, for those that could not otherwise afford them.
Anyone can give to the foundation or learn more about its mission in Houston and abroad on its website cole-foundation.org.
In 2017, the foundation committed hundreds of labor hours and thousands of dollars to assist victims of Hurricane Harvey, including acquiring custom leg braces for a woman who had not walked without assistance or pain in more than 20 years. In years past, it has provided aid to help children or elderly people walk and installed an access ramp for a man to safely enter and exit his home.
And their “mission does not stop locally.” Over the past nine years, the organization has been able to send teams of therapists on nine different missions to places like Ecuador, India, China, Guatemala and Haiti to provide the same important therapies, education for caregivers and tools for mobility that it provides in Houston.
“We are making a difference here, and abroad,” Brandi Taff, Event Chairperson, wrote in an introduction letter. “We are transforming lives. We are bringing hope. We would like you to be a part of our journey.”
The Cole Foundation Casino Night will be held from 7-10 p.m. on Friday, September 21 at the Northampton Community Center in Spring, Texas. Click here to buy tickets or become a sponsor of the event.
