Poker Players Go All In for Charity
Over eighty participants turned out for the Poker 'Tournament of Hearts' and Food Drive at the Centre for Digital Media on Wednesday night. Included among the 60 players were 39 industry guests who took part in the Texas hold'em rounds with students, faculty and staff members. Pizza dinner, drinks, popcorn and entertainment were also provided by the Centre.
A silent auction of items donated by Annex Pro, EA, Microsoft, Radical, Hothead Games and Big Fish Games was held during the games. Along with cash donations, the event raised over $650, as well as several canned goods and other items for the Vancouver Food Bank. Prizes donated by the event sponsors were awarded to three winners in the final showdown.
