Cards for a Cause

The La Costa 35 Athletic Club hosted its 9th Annual Texas Hold ‘Em Poker Tournament in November, benefiting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Carlsbad (BGCC). Nearly 200 players participated in the tournament at 20 tables. With play going on well into the night, Bobby Pike was awarded the coveted Winners Bracelet and selected a Haro Subvert HT7 mountain bike as his prize. “In the end, it’s the kids who win. Over $55,000 in net proceeds was raised for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Carlsbad!” said Tournament Director Rob Holzman. Learn more about BGCC at www.bgccarlsbad.org.
