Summary: 

Over the past two years, the economic downturn had a direct impact on many members of our community. To make a difference, we developed a Charity Texas Hold'em Tournament in which all entrance fees and matching gifts were donated to our rabbi's discretionary fund to be distributed anonymously to families in need. The event fulfilled a mitzvah in providing needed financial assistance to the community, attracted quite a few young men to participate, and left everyone with a great sense of enjoyment and accomplishment.
