On April 10th Working Families' Friend held its 6th Annual Texas Holdem Tournament at the Plumbers and Pipefitters Union Hall. Nearly 200 poker players competed for the coveted honor of making it to the final table. Nine players achieved that goal. There are photos of this event in the 2015 Texas Hold'em Photo Gallery.
The amount raised at this event broke all previous years’ records netting just over $20,000. All those funds will be used to provide emergency assistance to hard-working people who find themselves in a one-time crisis with nowhere to turn.
This is one of three major fundraisers that Working Families' Friend hosts each year. Other events planned for 2015 are a golf tournament on June 16th at The Deuce Golf Club and the Annual Fall Cookout in the Working Families' Friend parking lot on Thursday, September 10th.
