For its 4th edition, the 2020 Poker Tournament/Casino Night aims to raise the record amount of $50,000 to finance Ricochet, whose mission is to create housing resources for young people aged 18 to 35 who live with residential instability in the West Island. This event will mark the end of the #OneBrickAtATime campaign, which began on October 18, 2019 with Caisse Desjardins de l’Ouest-de-l’Île as its main partner.
An emblematic figure of the #OneBrickAtATime campaign, the Desjardins Virtual Wall is being built with the support of the community. Through the purchase of virtual bricks, donors are helping to bring us closer to our goal of creating the first emergency shelter resource for young adults in the West Island. You have until February 22, 2020, to buy your brick!
Ricochet is a solution to the residential instability and the social exclusion of young adults, which AJOI is working hard on with extremely limited resources. Homelessness is THE problem most addressed by the beneficiaries of AJOI’s services. It was addressed 976 times in the past year alone. AJOI needs the support of the community to carry out its emergency shelter project. This resource is necessary to preserve the dignity of young people going through difficult challenges in life and wishes to welcome them and give them the necessary tools for a better start in life.
The 2020 Poker Tournament / Casino Night will take place on Saturday, February 22, 2020 beginning at 3:30 p.m. at the Sarto-Desnoyers Community Center in Dorval.
For $20, you will have access to the Casino Night, in addition to receiving 10,000 chips for playing blackjack and roulette. On-site, you can get more chips for an unforgettable evening of games!
