American Legion Fund Raiser Poker Tourney in Iowa City

by Lou on September 7, 2007

If you live or visit the area, you might want to support the Iowa City American Legion. The Legion is hosting a fundraising poker tournament on Tuesday, November 13, 7- 11 PM, in Iowa City, Iowa, featuring a silent auction, raffle, and door prizes for all tournament players (we expect about 100 players).

The Legion is home to twice weekly regular tournaments and numerous charity tournaments throughout the year, so our needs for poker supplies are always ongoing.

The Iowa City American Legion is an organization to honor and support the sacrifices of veterans and service members, but also an organization dedicated to community service. In the past year the Legion has hosted poker tournaments raising money for two school foundations, at risk youth programs, disabled assistance, and a music festival just to name a few.

The Legion has been hosting twice weekly Texas Hold’em Tournaments for a number of years. Through the Legion new people are introduced to the game of poker in a non-threatening environment. Legion players have gone on to play in some of the largest on-line tournaments, to play in the World Series of Poker, the Heartland Poker Tour, and to win regional tournaments.
