Playing Poker, You Know, For the Kids

by The Editors on November 29, 2021

The La Costa 35 Athletic Club, a local nonprofit organization, hosted its 10th Annual Texas Hold ‘Em Poker Tournament on November 13, benefiting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Carlsbad.

Begun in 2011 as a way to give back to the community, the first poker tournament was held at the then under construction Bressi Ranch Boys & Girls Clubhouse. Since its inception, the event has nearly tripled in attendance and raised nearly $400,000. . . “There were 15 poker tables and close to 150 players,” said Tournament Director Rob Holzman. “In the end, it’s the kids who win. Over $41,000 in net proceeds was raised for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Carlsbad!”
