Keep Pearland Beautiful (KPB) will host the 9th annual Pocket Pear Speakeasy Party on June 10, 2017 at the Pearland Lions Club located at 3350 S. Main, Pearland, TX 77581. Please join us for a fun-filled evening of food, drinks, dancing and casino games. Each year KPB hosts the Pocket Pear to raise funds for the Joe Miller Environmental Scholarship Fund, benefiting high school seniors in Pearland pursuing higher education.
Come dressed in your roaring 20’s attire, as we flash back to the speakeasy era, where mobsters rule the back alleys and flappers take the dance floor. Whether your coming to claim the coveted Texas Hold’em Tournament title, try your hand at Black Jack and Roulette or just want to ‘dance’, we have an evening you won’t want to miss. The Poker Tournament is limited to 50 players; be sure to select whether you want to enter the Poker Tournament or play other casino games.
