FORT MYERS, Fla. (July 8, 2015) – The Fourth Annual Texas Hold ‘Em No Limit Poker Tournament, held June 25 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Fort Myers, netted more than $27,000 for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Lee County’s Summer Enrichment Programs.
“It was another great turnout during this annual night of fun and giving, and we’re so thankful for the local businesses as well as the registered players who make this all possible,” said Justin Stockman, event chair. “It’s a great feeling knowing that we’re working together as a community of individuals who believe in the success of our youth.”

According to Stockman, all event proceeds will benefit the BGCLC’s Summer Enrichment Programs that address the “summer learning loss” experienced by at-risk and underserved youth. With the funds, the Clubs will be able to provide academically focused activities to ensure more than 400 of its members continue to make positive gains in their education and high-yield learning opportunities to promote creativity and participation in the arts. Free, nutritious lunches and snacks will also be provided daily during the camps to keep tummies full and minds sharp, while daily recreation and sports sessions will help youth stay active and healthy.
“While our Clubs are commonly known to provide positive after-school programs to the community’s at-risk youth, we also continue our mission to inspire and enable these young people even through the summer months when academic retention is critical,” said Shannon Lane, chief professional officer of the BGCLC. “Unfortunately, when school doors close, many children struggle to access educational opportunities as well as basic needs such as healthy meals and adequate adult supervision. Our Clubs are where those kids need to be, spending their summer days engaging in educational activities and other programs that we ensure create positive outcomes for our members both in school and the community.”

4th Annual Poker Tournament
More than 100 people attended this year’s event, and prizes included $2,000 for first place, $750 for second and $250 for third.
The annual event was presented by Scanlon Auto Group, Encore Bank, UBS – Charlie Todd, Total Electric Contracting, Inc., Investors’ Security Trust, Homewood Suites, Alexander & Hoover, CPA’s, Owen-Ames-Kimball Co., Chris-Tel Construction, Fireservice, Inc. and Patrick’s Lawn Service.
Celebrating almost 41 years of providing quality youth programs and brighter futures for young people in the Lee County community, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Lee County works to inspire and enable young people to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens. The BGCLC strives to provide a safe, world-class Club experience that assures success is within reach of every young person who walks through its doors. The organization envisions all of its members graduating high school with a plan for the future, demonstrating good character, citizenship while adapting a healthy lifestyle.

4th Annual Poker Tournament 2
The area’s five Clubs are located in communities with the greatest need where similar services are limited or nonexistent. Membership dues are $10 per school year so that all children can have access to its programs. The BGCLC relies upon the philanthropic support of individuals, corporations and foundations in order to sustain and grow its services.
