Yasiel Puig’s Celebrity Casino Royale was held on Thursday, June 13 at Great American Ball Park to benefit the Wild Horse Children’s Foundation. The evening provided a priceless opportunity for fans to play poker with Puig and his celebrity guests. In addition to a poker tournament, the event featured casino games, local-favorite food and beverage vendors, and endless entertainment in the FOX Sports Club.
In partnership with the Reds Community Fund, proceeds from the event will go directly towards serving underprivileged youth and families in the Greater Cincinnati Area. The Wild Horse Children’s Foundation plans to renovate two ball fields in the region and contribute to the Reds Community Fund’s state-of-the-art Reds Youth Academy, which provides free, year-round training and education.
The casino night kicked off with a star-studded red carpet for sponsors and VIP guests including current and former Reds, other local professional athletes and celebrities, followed by an exclusive dinner program in the Handlebar. The dinner program featured an award presentation honoring Hall of Famer, Marty Brennaman, with the Foundation’s Inspiration Award.
