10th Annual Poker Tournament was a HUGE success!

The Boys & Girls Club of Lee County (BGCLC) hosted a successful 10th Annual No Limit Texas-Hold’em Poker Tournament on Thursday, July 28th at the Crowne at Plaza Hotel at Bell Tower Shops. Almost 100 players joined together to have fun and support a great cause.

The event was sponsored by our World Champion Sponsor: Scanlon Auto Group who has supported us each year since the tournament began. Sponsors also included Lake Michigan Credit Union (LMCU); Total Electric; TriCircle Pavers; Geraghty, Dougherty & Stockman; Busey Bank; Tomahawk Construction; Barron Collier Companies; BP Roofing; and the Crown Plaza Hotel at Bell Tower Shops.

The event is for amateur poker players with volunteer dealers, and has been a staple fundraiser for the BGCLC for a decade. And this year, we are excited to announce that we surpassed our fundraising goal! In addition to poker playing, the evening included blackjack and darts games, raffle prizes, a silent auction, photobooth and delicious food and drink, thanks to our sponsors, Chick-Fil-A, Coke Florida, Tito’s Vodka, and the Crowne Plaza Hotel.

High energy was in the room all evening and we CONGRATULATE the tournament winners:
John Cheffy (1st place), Ethan Lever (2nd place) and Pedro Conte (3rd place).
These stars played a great game. And our 1st place winner generously donated a portion of his winnings back to the BGCLC.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Lee County raised almost $85,000 to support our programs, including $30,000 in scholarships to help kids in our community attend the program.

We are very grateful to our sponsors, donors, poker players and attendees for making our 10th annual poker tournament the best one so far. To view photos, click this LINK.
