Philanthropic group Lamorinda Gives Back and local developmental disability service provider Las Trampas School, Inc. have partnered to raise more than $11,000 for services for people with developmental disabilities in Central Contra Costa County.

On June 8, 2018, Las Trampas hosted the Cards for Humanity charity poker tournament, assisted by Lamorinda Gives Back or LAMA. Players gathered upstairs at 1515 Restaurant and Lounge in Walnut Creek to enjoy food, drinks, a raffle, and 7 rounds of fast-paced poker action to benefit Las Trampas’ programs.

“Las Trampas is a remarkable organization with great leadership who make real differences for adults with developmental disabilities on a daily basis,” said LAMA President Brian Britton.  “We at Lamorinda Gives Back (LAMA) were pleased to assist Las Trampas host the ‘Cards for Humanity’ poker event on June 8th.  LAMA is grateful for the support from our members and the attendees from across the east bay who participated at this event and helped raise money for this worthwhile cause.  A special thank you to 1515 Restaurant, Lost Republic Distillery, and those who donated prizes for all the generous support.

Las Trampas Executive Director, Daniel Hogue, notes “We’re thrilled to work with Lamorinda Gives Back again this year. Events like Cards for Humanity are an investment in a community that is welcoming and inclusive for all and we’re so grateful to everyone who came out to support our work. “
