The Entrepreneurs Foundation of Central Texas (EF) is a local Austin organization aimed at promoting philanthropy, community engagement, and, of course, entrepreneurship. Red Velvet Events (RVE) has been a long-time partner of EF, and for the last few years we have been proud to work with them to produce many events. This year we are sponsoring their twelfth annual EF Poker Night, and we wanted to share with you what it is all about!


EF Poker Night is an annual event where “entrepreneurs bluff, bait and outsmart each other at the poker table for a good cause.” Players compete not only for bragging rights, but the right to award a US$10,000 grant from the Entrepreneurs Foundation to a local Austin charity. The candidate charities change each year, and this year the winner will donate to Goodwill Austin, Girlstart, Code2College, or Con Mi MADRE. All event proceeds directly fund EF’s service of providing free support to their members’ startup programs. The tournament brings in companies big and small for a night of competitive fun. If you are an Austin entrepreneur, this is the place to be!


If you have spent any time on our website or social media, you know just how proud we are to be Austinites. We love nothing more than seeing our community grow and prosper, and so of course we like to support EF’s mission however we can. EF Poker Night brings in sponsors and attendees from across Austin for an opportunity to build genuine relationships, support each other’s businesses, and unite in giving back to our community. RVE is proud to be both a sponsor and an attendee – our professional services team consults with EF to ensure their event is a success, and Cindy purchases tickets each year to play.

EF Poker Night 2018 is TONIGHT, November 7th. Learn more about the event here and start thinking about how you could participate in 2019.
