Lee Association for Remarkable Citizens (LARC) will host a Poker Trek at Miromar Outlets on Sunday, February 19, 2023. Participants will have a chance to win the grand prize of a $500 Miromar Outlets gift card and other great prizes by trekking to participating stores within Miromar Outlets. The cost to play is $35 per person. All proceeds will benefit LARC’s programs and services that help individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities achieve their potential.
Check-in begins at 1:30 p.m. Participants will pick up a map, and swag bag and then, from 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m., visit participating stores to collect cards and build their poker hands. As in real poker, participants will not know their hand until the end. Winners will be announced at 5:00 p.m. Light refreshments will be provided by Naples Flatbread and Palm City Brewing. A silent auction will also be available.
“The proceeds LARC receives from events like this are essential to our fundraising efforts. They help raise the critical funds needed to help those with intellectual and developmental disabilities to keep moving forward while maximizing their independence and employment success,” said Angela Katz, LARC’s Executive Director.
Established in 1954, LARC is a training center for success for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. LARC serves more than 300 individuals annually, and participants range in age from 14 to 80.
