Eva's Heroes Casino Night, 2012

On the Red capet donning one of my brother's NIKOLAKI vintage designs.
 I'm so happy & grateful  to be a part of Eva's Heroe's Casino Night, once again, this year. I've been very fortunate to have been a part of this event since it's inception 5 years ago. In fact, it's one of the very 1st "appearances" after my experience on CBS's SURVIVOR. Click here for images from the very 1st and 2nd Eva's Heroes events:
This time, it was at the JW Marriott Resort.  It was a special evening featuring Poker tables, of course and even Slot Machines!

 There was a Live and a Silent Auction which was, thankfully very succesful once again this year. I believe last year raising over $100,000.   Above to the right, some painting's by my good friend, Lettie Longoria's husband, Hector.  They also had a XBOX Tent set up where you could, well, play XBOX games. Here are Mario and Eva, playing like a "brother" and a "sister," well, not quite, shall I say like a grown up brother and sister would play,  having a blast!
The event was Hosted by the Eloquent Bill Taylor, Kens 5 Meteorologist 
former colleague of mine from my beginnings on local television: HEB Plus! TV Spokesperson and Fill In morning news traffic anchor:

I'm forever grateful to Bob McGann and Kurt Davis for giving me those opportunities. I look forward to re-joining the Kens 5 team in the near future, if another opportunity opens up for me! I always enjoy running into my friend, Mr. Gordon Hartman, whose Foundation:  goes hand in hand w/Eva's Heroes.  Last, but not least, with Eva's wonderful family whom I treasure:  Lisa, Ella and Enrique..I adore them!
