Poker tournament raises $19K for Boys & Girls Club

The second annual No-Limit Texas Hold ‘Em Tournament held on June 8 raised more than $19,000 for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Lee County.

The money raised will help provide more than 300,000 hours of service to more than 420 students in our community, primarily helping to fund the summer youth programs at the five Boys & Girls Clubs locations in Lee County.

Now in its 39th year of providing quality youth programs in Lee County, the Boys & Girls Clubs works to inspire and enable young people to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens. Membership dues are $10 per school year so that all children can have access to our programs. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Lee County relies upon the philanthropic support of individuals, corporations and foundations in order to sustain and grow its services.

The tournament entry fee is $100 per person. Registration is available online at and is first-come, first-serve. Information: Shannon Lame at (239) 344-1886 or Justin Stockman at
