L.A.’s Brimmer Street Theatre Co. Gambles on Fundraiser

Brimmer Street Theatre Company is betting its patrons will want to bluff their way through its annual fundraiser next month.

The Los Angeles ensemble, a non-profit which produces and develops new work, is hosting a professional Texas Hold ‘Em poker tournament at its annual gala. Buy in for the card game is $35.

The event is being billed as the “High Rollers’ Masquerade Ball” and is set for March 16. The tournament kicks off at 9 p.m. The grand prize is a New York theater-themed vacation.

For those disinclined to wager the night away, there’s an open bar and complimentary hors d’oeuvres, and a raffle prize for a San Francisco getaway.

General admission tickets are $40. Cocktail attire is required and masks are encouraged.
