Poker Heros Create
February 8, 2022

When it comes to successful poker ventures, be it a new tour, publication or organization, certain names inevitably seem to be involved.  In poker circles, these key people are revered almost as much for their intelligence, integrity, organizational abilities and instincts, as they are for the poker prowess which at this point has made many of them household names.   

I’m talking of course about people like Mike Sexton, Jan Fisher and Linda Johnson, all three of whom have decided to team up with Queens of Heart founder and creator Lisa Tenner, to create a brand new non-profit charity, dedicated to helping poker players give back. 

“ will act as a charitable vehicle to collect and redistribute donations from card rooms, fundraisers, poker players, and special events," said the “Ambassador of Poker” Mike Sexton.  

"Many poker players want to give to charity and don't know the best way to do so. will make it easy for them. All they have to do is send a check to Poker Gives in care of the Nevada Community Foundation. The donations will be gathered and distributed to worthwhile charities," added legendary tournament director and columnist Jan Fisher. 

Some of the charities already selected to receive funds from include Special Olympics, Sunflower Children, Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, American Cancer Society, and Paralyzed Veterans of America.
