I know absolutely nothing about poker and I will be the first to admit it, so when I was asked to plan a poker tournament I was absolutely dumbfounded.
Luckily this was going to be a very casual event and the internal kick-off to our massive expansion of our Emergency Department. We found a great company that provided the dealers, tables, chips and cards.
A few of our guests had no idea what they were doing (and some just wanted some practice!) so one of the dealers was nice enough to hold an impromptu poker lesson
One of my favorite BBQ restaurants also does catering and also has some amazing craft beer so of course I thought of no better place to have provide food and beer for this event! The food was a huge hit, we had nurses and physicians who were working stopping by to eat some of the left overs! Our guests truly enjoyed the beer more than anything else!
The poker company handled everything from making sure that everyone was having a good time and moved each player from table to table at they won each hand.
Most of our guests stuck around to see the final table play! The winners received a prizes that had been donated from local Casinos and Resorts.
My fabulous team! I couldn't do what I do without them! (Me, Paul and Alex)
A few of our winners!
Our big winner!
