HFS Scholars Casino Night: Bettin’ for a Bright Future

At Swoon we are dedicated to identifying and connecting great talent with great work. We know that talent resides everywhere, but that it often has to work harder to get recognized and developed in underserved communities. We also know that some of the barriers that keep individuals from underserved communities out of the talent pipeline are starting to dissolve thanks to organizations like HFS Chicago Scholars.

At Swoon we’re also known to enjoy a nice game of cards (among friends), but still have some work to do on our poker face. So imagine our excitement at having the opportunity to help to help HFS Chicago Scholars, an organization committed to helping students from underserved communities get the education and mentoring their talents merit, with their Casino Night.

“I am really glad I volunteered for the HFS Chicago Scholars Charity Event- it was a nice change of pace. I haven’t volunteered for anything like it before. The drinks were flowing and the poker faces were on. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and it was all for an amazing cause,” remarked Swooner Tara Interrante.

So it appears you can make a difference and have a lot of fun in the process.
