Poker Players Giving Back In Tucson

Our sponsors

One of the things that makes our regular poker players so special is the fact that our events are always about more than just poker.  For anyone looking for a cheap ego boost for being the best poker player in the known universe, our events aren’t the place where such delusions are stroked.  Instead, our regular players appreciate the social aspect of poker that makes it a welcoming game for both amateurs and experienced players alike–which allows our events to highlight the art winning and losing each poker hand with class and respect for others.

Even more than that, our players are committed to the goal using our events as a vehicle to give back to the community.  Much like the time Mondo donated his entire tournament winnings to the local girl’s softball team hoping to represent Tucson in Vegas, or the time Zach from DZ Poker worked with Sean Wade and the whole Native final table to have an entire cash prize pool donated to the wife of a fellow poker player who had deceased, we cater to a customer base that believes in giving back and making a difference in the lives of others.  Our players compete on the felt with an intensity that’s just as fierce as other players, but that’s not all they bring to the poker table each week.  They also bring with them a unique spirit of giving back that’s virtually unmatched.

That’s why we are proud to announce that we will be working with a local cause to help feed the less fortunate on Thanksgiving.  We have partnered with Tucson Helping Tucson Annual Kirk Lowry’s Feeding Tucson Day.  Each Tuesday at Throwbacks Sports Bar & Grill, Troy will be collecting donations and canned items to be given out on November 27, 2015.

More info about Tucson Helping Tucson Annual Kirk Lowry’s Feeding Tucson Day:

Kirk Lowry spent his Thanksgiving holidays helping people who were less fortunate than he was.  He would find volunteers, ask for donations and use his own money to put together a turkey meal on Thanksgiving and bring it to the parks in Tucson to help the community.  His was passionate about this and enjoyed it every year.

Kirk passed away earlier this year and friends have decided to continue this act of love and kindness in his name.
