On Super Bowl Sunday (prior to the game), some special students from Palmetto High School will put on the 14th annual poker tournament to support people with disabilities, which has grown to well over 100 participants annually.
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.
