On the 14th of October took place the event called Charity Poker Night organized by the Rotary Club Chisinau and Rotaract Club Chisinau. A project that combined fun and social dedication, where all participants played poker for a good cause.

Poker beginners, enthusiasts, as well as supporters that just wanted to watch others exploit their minds, were invited to participate and experience a night with Rotary and Rotaract, while helping someone in need.

Due to the active involvement from the participants, plus donations from sponsors, the Charity Poker Night managed to raise an amount of almost 550 Euro. The money collected during the event will be used in the procurement of a sterilizer for the disinfection of medical instruments at the Emilian Coţaga Republican Children Clinic Hospital, medical facilities representing a common problem of Moldovan hospitals.

Despite the fact that the winners of the competition received non-financial gifts from our partner firms, the pleasure and satisfaction of the game gave them something more significant! They managed to make a change for someone and the feeling that you help is worth many material things.
