STEP BY STEP FOUNDATION HOSTS
“ALL IN FOR CHARITY 2010”
TM
DURING FTI WINTER EQUESTRIAN FESTIVAL AT
PALM BEACH INTERNATIONAL EQUESTRIAN CENTER

(Friday, January 29, 2010 – 6:30 PM to Midnight – Wellington, FL)

FUNDS RAISED AT POKER TOURNAMENT & BENEFIT EVENT
 TO HELP COMPLETE CONSTRUCTION OF TIPA TIPA
ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
IN HAITI

 

Liliane Stransky, the founder and President of the Step by Step Foundation, will host the inaugural "All In For Charity 2010 Texas Hold ‘Em Poker Tournament and Charity Benefit” during the FTI Winter Equestrian Festival on Friday, January 29, 2010.  Funds raised during the poker tournament and charity evening at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center in Wellington, FL will help finish the construction of the Tipa Tipa Elementary School in Lahaie, Haiti, the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere.

Event Chair Margie Engel, a US Olympic show jumping medalist, will be joined by some of the world’s leading riders, trainers, and a slew of supporters in the PBIEC arena for an evening of action-packed competition.  “This event is a wonderful way to bring the equestrian community together for a very important cause - and to have a lot of fun at the same time,” said the Grand Prix veteran and 10 time AGA Rider of the Year. “I’ll be bringing my equestrian colleagues to the tables for some competition outside the show jumping arena!” The festivities will be held in the Corporate Hospitality Tent alongside the main arena at from 6:30 pm to midnight. 

“Completing the construction of our school is the priority,” stated Stransky.  “Currently the children in Haiti learn sitting outside on rocks, or wood, or in the heat or damp; under tarps or partially wooded huts. There is no access to running water, electricity or paved roads, and some children are forced to walk two hours each way to attend the nearest school. The opening of ‘Tipa Tipa,’ which translates in French Creole as ‘step by step,’ will mean that these youngsters will have a safe and secure school in their community. Parents will be able to participate in the education of their children, and the community will play an active role in the raising of their children. The people who live there lack access to safe water and health services.  We are expanding our programs to encompass those and other development projects.”

This past fall Liliane and her daughters Daniela (14) and Samantha (21) gathered a group of youth from South Florida for a community mission with the Step by Step Foundation to Lahaie, Haiti.  At the remote fishing village they provided educational supplies, clothing, uniforms, and personal water filters to the children of the elementary school.   Daniela, who rides and trains at the family’s Stransky Mission Farm in Wellington, donates proceeds of her prize money earned during show jumping competitions to Step by Step Foundation, and encourages other young riders to do the same. “It is not hard to help,” explains the 8th grader who attends the Country Day School in Miami. “Everyone can be of assistance in their own way.”   The young equestrian is hands on and when not riding, mentors children, helps run programs and tutors.  Daniela’s goals are focused and clear - to continue to work with her mother and the Step by Step Foundation, become an Olympic Rider and….yes, a professional poker player! 

General admission includes access to the event, casino tables including roulette, craps, three card poker, and blackjack, fine fare and delicious catering, an art auction, and a silent auction.  The highlight at the “All In For Charity 2010” will be playing alongside the WEF equestrian stars in the tournament and at the casino tables. All money raised will go to finishing the construction of the Tipa Tipa Elementary School in Lahaie, Haiti, as well as to provide water and health services to the impoverished community.

STEP BY STEP MISSION: Our mission is to enhance the lives of underprivileged children by creating and supporting, health, nutrition, water, education and other programs that substantially impact the human rights and development of children worldwide, and that contribute to the accomplishment of the Millennium Development Goals. The goal is to establish holistic community development programs that can be replicated throughout Haiti, and then throughout other impoverished communities in countries around the world.  The programs are community-driven and involve partnerships with residents and local and international non-profit organizations, governments, and international development agencies. Through this approach, Liliane Stansky aims to build community capacity to ensure the development of systemic programs that not only serve immediate needs, but also create sustainable economic impact.  Step by Step Foundation, Inc., is a registered 501 (c) (3) not for profit organization registered in the State of Florida. 

Please contact Kathy Anderson regarding sponsorships and in-kind donations as prizes and silent auction items for the event.  For further information and tickets please visit www.stepbystepfoundation.com .
