Lori Hartwell’s RSN’s charity poker tournament will guarantee you tons of laughs while supporting a beautiful cause. Bet big with no guilt! That’s something you can’t say everyday. –Jill Michele Melean

Kids shouldn’t get sick, but when they do we need to be there for them… amazing doctors and nurses try to heal them physically, but people like Lori Hartwell and her team at RSN help them feel better emotionally. The Renal Prom is quite simply one of the greatest events of the year… helping kids be kids… and if playing poker helps Lori and her work? Then sign me up! –Phillip Palmer, ABC Eyewitness News

A great night of fun playing Bingo, meeting new people, and knowing that the RSN Celebrity Poker/Bingo event is for such a wonderful cause. –Christopher Ard

I’m a poker novice and the RSN poker tournament was the most fun I’ve ever had losing money. All for a great cause. Supporting the RSN prom. –Lee Cauble, RN

I met a real life super hero today. My wife and I played bingo sitting next to a guy who donated his kidney to a stranger! I can’t give you my heart, because that’s already taken, but I can give you a kidney. This was my first time, but I’ll be back next year just because of what I learned today. –Jay Maffi
