Charity Poker Tournament

Our 1st Annual Charity Poker Tournament was a full success! We couldn’t be happier! Five lucky winners took their prize money home, and we were able to raise a nice amount for our A Million Drops Learning Center. Please enjoy a few snapshots of the event, from setting up to the final three players.

Frank Uchalik Jr, owner of Alpha Medical Props, had cleared out space in one of his showrooms.

Pam Elyea and Linda Busquet, two of our wonderful volunteers, with AMD board member Don W. Neil

The calm before the storm… during registration, the player enjoyed the yummy taco dinner, provided by Jim and Maria Knox

Our very cool, event themed signage was created by NCIS graphic designer Doug Reilly

We showcased pieces that were created by youth and young adults experiencing homelessness

More beautiful works by some of the peeps who come to our A Million Drops Learning Center

We started out with eight tables…

As more and more players were eliminated, tables were taken out until the final eight players were seated at the last remaining table.

A large monitor displayed the current time, round, blinds and minutes left.

Tension and anticipation grew with only seven players left.

Larrick represented A Million Drops at one of the tables and made it about 2/3 through!

Everybody was holding their breath; you cut have cut the tension with a knife

The rush of adrenaline was too much; one of our players had to stand up to release tension….

The final three, Lisa, the tournament director and excited spectators
