The La Costa 35 Athletic Club, a local nonprofit organization, hosted its 6th Annual Texas Hold ‘Em Poker Tournament on November 12, benefiting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Carlsbad. The LC35 Athletic Club was formed in 1984 to promote friendly competition, good sportsmanship, and a social outlet for its members – Carlsbad residents aged 35 and older.
“The move to Rancho Santa Fe Motor Club with catering from Bushfire Kitchen and Major Events added to the atmosphere. And professional poker player and TV personality Maria Ho made the event even more unique and entertaining,” said Tournament Director Rob Holzman. “There were 26 poker tables, nearly 250 players, and net proceeds of over $55,000 for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Carlsbad – an all-time record!”
