The Stacy Fuson Foundation - a volunteer driven organization that creates avenues for people with disabilities to be important and active members of the community - will hold its 3rd Annual Stacy Fuson Foundation Charity Poker Tournament with co-hosts Arizona Diamondbacks’ Evan Longoria and his wife Jaime Edmondson Longoria.
The 3rd Annual Stacy Fuson Foundation Charity Poker Tournament will be held on Saturday, February 25, 2023, from 5:00 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. at the Ability360 Sports & Fitness Center located at 5031 East Washington Street, Phoenix, Arizona. The evening will include poker, prizes, philanthropy, cocktails, dinner, entertainment, photo opportunities, and casino play including blackjack, craps, and roulette.
Arizona Diamondbacks’ newest addition, Major League Baseball Third Baseman Evan Longoria, will co-host the event with his wife, Playboy Magazine’s Miss January, former Miami Dolphins cheerleader, professional model, and two-time The Amazing Race contestant, Jaime Edmondson Longoria.
“I’m excited to support The Stacy Fuson Foundation’s event again this year to help local athletes with disabilities to continue to be active,” said Evan Longoria. “This is my community, and I couldn’t be happier to be immersed in it and to support my neighbors.”
The fundraiser will benefit those with disabilities, including Ability360 Sports & Fitness Center’s co-ed wheelchair softball and power soccer teams. Ability360 empowers people with disabilities to take personal responsibility so that they may achieve or continue independent lifestyles within the community. Ability360 does this through providing various programs and services, including adaptive sports and recreation, employment services, benefits counseling, homecare, peer mentoring and other supports.
