On Saturday 19th March we invited a select group of bloggers from Yorkshire and beyond, to our #HoldEm4Charity event at the Double Tree by Hilton in Leeds. We gave our guests the opportunity to try their hand at Texas Hold'em Poker, whilst being in with the chance of winning £500 for a charity of their choice.
Our guests arrived at the hotel dressed in 1920s Great Gatsby-era attire and were greeted with a Champagne reception. This gave our guests chance to mingle and get to know each other before the main event.
Throughout the evening, bloggers were treated to drinks and canapés to accompany a fantastic evening of poker, competitions and goodie bags. As well as poker, we had a blackjack table and a magician who showed our guests the art of sleight-of-hand. We also hosted a best dressed competition at the end of the evening, in which the winner took home a selection of chocolates to enjoy.
Bryony from Breakfast at Bryony won the overall poker competition and received £500 for a charity of her choice. Congratulations Bryony!
A fantastic evening was had by all and we would like to thank all the bloggers who came from far and wide for the event. We would also like to thank the staff at the Double Tree by Hilton for hosting our evening.
