"The Poker4Life charity event is a terrific night of fun and excitement with a silent auction and plenty of poker action. All proceeds go to a very worthwhile cause. I had the privilege of participating last year and it really was a 'night to remember'. I'd recommend that if possible, you should play in the Poker4Life tournament - you'll be glad you did."

    I want to thank everyone from meetup.com for attending our event. It was a huge success, raising over $200,000 for The Bouniconti Fund and spinal cord injury research. I look forward to next year when we can make it an even bigger success.

    Stay tuned for videos and pictures.

    It was a Fantastic Event, for a worthwhile cause, with outstanding people. Very well organized and friendly atmosphere. Had the pleasure to meet Corey and those that were responsible for organizing the event, and they were all genuinely outstanding individuals. I will definitely attend next years event.
