Poker Face: Masquerade Ball at the Ritz-Carlton Raises Money for Local Charities October 25

Sep 17 2013, 9:06pm CDT | by PR.com

Presented by Lodestone Real Estate, event will feature casino-themed games and silent auction with proceeds going to three Charlotte-based non-profits.

Charlotte, NC, September 17, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Charlotte-based brokerage Lodestone Real Estate will host their first annual charity gala, Poker Face Charlotte, on Friday, October 25, 2013, from 7:30 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. at The Ritz-Carlton, Charlotte.

Gala guests will enjoy casino-themed games, raffle and a luxury-filled silent auction, set against the backdrop of city views from The Ritz-Carlton’s Great Room. Tickets are $50 until October 15 after which prices will increase to $75. A 10% discount is available for group purchases of ten tickets or more. Guest can RSVP and purchase tickets at pokerfacecharlotte.com.

Proceeds from the night’s festivities will go to support three local non-profit organizations—Alzheimer’s Association (Western Carolina Chapter), DonorsChoose.org and Murray’s Fund. The charities were handpicked by the Lodestone team based on personal experience with the essential services these organizations provide to the Charlotte community.

“We couldn't be more excited about this event,” said Lodestone Owner Marissa Boyle. “More than just living and working in Charlotte, we strive to invest in the community at large. The gala gives us a chance to highlight causes that have touched the lives of the Lodestone team personally and have a great time while doing it.”

In keeping with the evening’s masquerade theme—and to help everyone maintain their poker face at the game tables—guests are encouraged to wear their favorite mask. Masks will also be available at the event, including more elaborate designs for purchase.

Heavy hors d’oeuvres and desserts will be served, and each ticket includes two drink tickets for a cash bar. Valet parking and “casino chips” that can be exchanged for raffle tickets are also included in the price of admission.
