Fundraiser to Benefit Physical Rehabilitation Hospital

Foundation joins forces with New City businesses

The Helen Hayes Hospital Foundation will host an “Apples Poker Run” on Sunday, March 6, 2011 from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. at Doyler & Dunney’s in New City, New York. The event, which is being organized by Elaine Apfelbaum, is a fundraiser for Helen Hayes Hospital, a leading specialty physical rehabilitation hospital serving individuals with catastrophic injuries and debilitating illnesses. The event is an entertaining way to support local businesses and the hospital.

Each four-person team will visit five New City establishments (Doyler & Dunney’s, LaTerrazza, Clubhouse, Castle Inn and Alfredo’s), where they will select one card from a deck. The team must visit all five locations during the four-hour event. All cards are returned to Doyler & Dunney’s by 4:30 p.m. in the provided sealed envelope. The top five poker hands will receive prizes.

The fee to register is $25 per person or $100 per team of four. A maximum of 52 teams may participate – so early register is encouraged.
