For the past two seasons, BCLionsDen.ca and BC Lions fans have been active in promoting and raising money for CFL Fans Fight Cancer. An unofficial charitable organization of CFL fans from across the country. With groups based in BC, Manitoba and Ontario, our efforts have raised thousands of dollars for cancer related causes within our local communities.
I’d like to invite you to join us for a fun evening of Texas Holdem poker and help raise money for the BC charity of choice, Hannah’s Heroes. Hannah was the daughter of a high school friend of mine. Hannah passed away on Oct 31, 2006 at age 5 from a rare brain stem tumor called Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, DIPG. Following her passing, the family created the Hannah’s Heroes Foundation to fight cancer in her name.
Following her daughter’s passing, Hannah’s mother Kathie, my high school friend, also passed away from a battle with cancer.
Our event will take place on Saturday, October 17th. As usual this tournament will be graciously and generously hosted by Brian and Sheila Scarr at their home in Langley. There are 24 spots available in this elimination tournament that will start with three tables, and end up with a final table. The entry fee is $50.00 with half of the money going directly to Hannah’s Heroes and the remainder going into the prize pot, a possible $600.00
The final two will have the say as to how the tournament ends. They can play for the pot or come to a mutual agreement and split the pot any way they see fit.
