Hosted by Congregation Bet Shira (SW 120th Street and 77th Avenue), the 3-hour Texas Hold ‘Em Tournament includes food and drink, raffles and lots of good conversation. Entry costs $20 and all players and volunteers receive five hours of community service credit.

The Poker Tournament benefits The Advocacy Network on Disabilities, formerly known as CCDH.  <www.advocacynetwork.org>.  Since 1975, the Advocacy Network has been Miami-Dade’s lead agency that coordinates and arranges services for individuals with developmental and other disabilities.

Annually, the tournament raises north of $5000. If you’d like to play, work or donate, please go to http://www.anodpokertournament.myevent.com/ where you can find out how.

New Whole Foods Store Opens

 “We are so very pleased to offer a brand new large format store for our local community,” explained Store Team Leader Adrienne Hutchings. “We strive to satisfy and delight our customers and the response we have received so far has surpassed expectations.”


The new store serves as a relocation from the previous Pinecrest location and brings a more expansive shopping experience to the community.
