Guests Enjoyed Poker and BBQ While Supporting Cancer Support Community San Gabriel Valley

Published on Nov 13, 2023

The Cancer Support Community San Gabriel Valley (CSCSGV) successfully hosted its much-anticipated Annual Poker Bowl Tournament on Sunday, November 12, at The Flying A Garage in Pasadena. The event, which ran from noon to 4 p.m., transformed a haven of classic automobiles into a bustling hub of charitable gaming and community spirit.

This year’s event, building on the momentum of last year’s gathering of over 150 guests, proved to be a spectacular showcase of both philanthropy and fun. Participants, for a buy-in of $275, were given $2,000 worth of chips to try their luck in Texas Hold ’em, and additional gaming tables offered further entertainment with “funny money”. Those not inclined towards poker were not left out. With a $100 ticket, guests could still immerse themselves in the excitement of the Lounge area, enjoying a Pie and Burger BBQ buffet without participating in the poker game.

But the Poker Bowl was more than just a gaming event. It was an opportunity to dine and socialize amidst a stunning array of antique and flawlessly restored automobiles. These cars, part of the private collection of Valerie and Aaron Weiss, are more than just vintage vehicles; they are stars of the road, having graced various Concours D’Elegance across the United States. This setting, supported by The Flying A Garage’s affiliations with prestigious automotive clubs and museums, added a unique charm and elegance to the event.

The Poker Bowl is not merely an afternoon of games and leisure; it is a vital part of CSCSGV’s mission to provide resources and community for those affected by cancer. The organization, known for its indispensable support services, ensured that the fun and excitement of the event translated into meaningful support for its cause.

The successful conclusion of this year’s Poker Bowl marks another milestone in CSCSGV’s ongoing efforts to support individuals and families dealing with cancer. The event stands as a testament to the power of community engagement in making a tangible difference in the lives of those in need.
