Food allergies are very common in the United States. With roughly 15 million Americans suffering from food allergies, including many Hammers here in the studio, it’s an issue that we care about deeply and that affects a large portion of the population.
That’s why we’re raising money this month for Allergy Bright Communities (ABC) by hosting an in-studio poker tournament. ABC is a Bay Area nonprofit organization committed to researching and raising awareness about food allergies and the dangers presented to allergy sufferers. ABC visits schools, holds workshops, and provides support for families and educators so that they can be prepared to deal with severe allergic reactions such as anaphylaxis.
We’ll follow up here with photos from the tournament. If you’re in the Bay Area and would like to donate or volunteer, send an email to email@example.com.
