Chris Baldwin and 2012 Poker Tournament Winner Jeff Grad!

2nd Annual Guys Night Out

On June 7, 2012 the beautiful Hilton Torrey Pines was transformed into a Vegas-style night club for the 2nd Annual Guys Night Out, and evening of networking, entertainment and fun. This year’s event was co-chaired by Anthony Josephson, Dan Feder and Todd Pianin.

A sports bar theme added some new features this year with ping pong tables and basketball pop-a-shot competitions and televised the MBA finals on flat screens strategically placed around the main bar. Again this year, our special guests were the San Diego Charger girls who performed several routines and mingled with the crowd. Another added attraction was the cigar lounge which was a huge hit.

Raffle prizes were abundant, the ambiance upbeat and exhilarating, and the buffet-style gourmet food appetizing, but the highlight of the evening was the poker tournament. Mazel tov to our grand prize winner, Jeff Grad, who won an incredible weekend getaway to Napa on a private jet and dinner for two. Could you be next year’s winner!

We would like to thank all of our sponsors and raffle prize donors, as well as our volunteers and guests because without you, this incredible event would not be possible.
