Eva’s Heroes Celebrity Casino Night Presented by L’Oréal Paris Will Mark Major Milestones at the 8th Annual Fundraiser on Oct. 3

September 9, 2015 — Celebrities, poker professionals, and Eva’s Heroes supporters will attend a night of classic casino fun presented by L’Oréal Paris to benefit the non-profit organization serving individuals with intellectual special needs in the San Antonio area.
Themed “Masquer8de,” the October 3 event at the Éilan Hotel & Spa will focus on Eva’s Heroes accomplishments in the nine years since Eva Longoria, the actress, director and producer, and philanthropist co-founded the organization with her friend, Christiane Perkins-Garcia.
“As we move closer to a decade of service to our community, Eva and I look forward to celebrating the growth of our organization and honoring the individuals we’ve been privileged to work with,” said Perkins-Garcia, board president of Eva’s Heroes.
More than 600 guests are expected for the traditional celebrity red carpet, Texas Hold ‘Em Poker tournament, live & silent auctions, and food specially prepared by celebrity chefs. The event is sponsored by H-E-B, the Éilan Hotel & Spa and many other notable corporate supporters.
“We look forward to sharing our organizational milestones and unveiling our community- wide plans to celebrate them during our upcoming 10th year anniversary,” said Shawne Zakaria, executive director of Eva’s Heroes. “We encourage everyone to join us for what will be a memorable event.”
Proceeds from Eva’s Heroes Celebrity Casino Night go toward Eva’s Heroes mission to enrich the lives of individuals with intellectual special needs. Eva’s Heroes currently offers Sibshops, Monthly Activities, Summer Enrichment, and After School Programs.
