McKINNEY — The Boys & Girls Clubs of Collin County (BGCCC) is pleased to announce their Third Annual Charity Texas Hold ‘Em Poker Tournament presented by Money Matters with Ken Moraif.

“Given the county’s rapid population growth, fundraisers like this and businesses like Money Matters with Ken Moraif help us expand our nationally recognized programming to even more Collin County youth each year." said Mike Simpson, Chief Executive Officer of the BGCCC.

“My motivation for supporting the Boys & Girls Clubs is that I think children are innocent and have boundless potential. They don’t choose the circumstances that they were born into. They can choose the future that they want, though. Too many children find themselves in conditions that seem impossible to get out of. They lose hope and then turn to crime and destructive behavior. Anything that I can do to break this cycle and give children the tools and the hope to improve their circumstances, I want to do.” stated Ken Moraif of Money Matters with Ken Moraif.

This event will be held on Thursday, Feb. 27 at Gleneagles Country Club, located at 5401 West Park Blvd. in Plano. Doors open at 6 p.m. and seating begins at 7 p.m.

Sponsorship opportunities are still available and details can be downloaded at bgccc.org/poker/pdf/2014PokerPacket.pdf.

To register for the tournament, please visit bgccc.org/poker by Thursday, Feb. 20 and make a $100 donation to BGCCC. Prizes will be awarded at the end of the evening and blackjack will be available for guests that do not prefer poker.
