FORT MYERS, Fla.- Calling all poker players!
Think you’ve got what it takes to go up against some of Southwest Florida’s best? If you do, put your poker face on and get ready for Thursday night’s Fourth Annual Texas Hold ‘Em Poker Tournament.
The proceeds will benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Lee County.
The evening will begin with a cocktail reception at 5 p.m. followed by the tournament at 6 p.m. Players are asked to arrive early and be seated before the start of the tournament. Complimentary food and beverages will be provided. The tournament will include more than $3,000 in cash and prizes.
The entry for the tournament will be a donation of $125 if purchased in the month of June and $150 if purchased the day of the event at the door. All other guests not participating in the tournament will be $25 each.
All event proceeds will benefit the BGCLC’s Summer Enrichment Programs that address the “summer learning loss” experienced by at-risk and underserved youth. With the funds, the Clubs will be able to provide academically focused activities to ensure more than 400 of its members continue to make positive gains in their education and high-yield learning opportunities to promote creativity and participation in the arts.
Space for the tournament is limited, so early registration is encouraged. To register, visit www.bgclcpoker.org. Registration will be based on a first-come, first-serve basis. No player substitutions will be permitted. Players must be 21 years old or older to play.
The poker tournament takes place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, located at 13051 Bell Tower Drive in Fort Myers.
