Dice, cards and diapers
Young Professionals support children at Warren Center

Between dice throws and Texas Hold ‘Em, Richardson Young Professionals donated more than 30 packets of diapers for children at the Warren Center.

More than 40 members attended Casino Night, which included donations from Idea Fountain, which donated casino tables and dealers, Even Stevens Sandwiches, which donated food, and Nothing Bundt Cake, which provided dessert.
