We are looking for volunteers to staff our chip sales activity in conjunction with the next Hold ‘Em event that is coming up starting on Wednesday, December 1st. through Saturday, December 4th. These Texas Hold ‘Em’s we work are a MAJOR source of funding for a whole variety of projects---programs---and activities the SPY’s support throughout the year and are critical to our financial success! If you have never worked one of these events, but would like to help out, there is absolutely nothing to fear! All that is involved is the selling of chips the players use in the game. That is all there is to it. The Hold ‘Em’s we work are held at the “Event Spot”, which is located across from the Lansing Mall, two doors down behind the Honey Baked Ham store on Saginaw Street.
