The 1st Annual Texas Hold'Em Poker Tournament hosted by the Cape Coral Lions Club on Jan. 27 was an outstanding success. A large crowd came for the buffet dinner at Terrace Hall and many stayed for the poker tournament. All Hearts Poker provided the tables, dealers and expertise.

The top winners were Carl Perone (1st - $650), William Servick (2nd - $400), and Victor Lambiase (3rd - $150).

"Everyone told me they had a great time and asked us to do this again," said Frank Lee, fundraising chair for the club. "We had some great partners in this venture. Mike Palladino at Terrace Hall was terrific to work with. Lori and Nicky of All Hearts Poker were unbelievable. There were all those generous Cape Coral businesses who kindly donated items for our silent auction. And our Lions worked tirelessly to make this succeed."

Lion President Judy Moulton commented, "We are grateful to the folk who came to enjoy themselves and, at the same time, help us raise money for our on-going charitable work. We hope to make this an annual event."

The club meets every 1st Thursday at 5 p.m. at Perkins Restaurant, Cape Coral Parkway, as well as the 3rd Thursday (September through May) at the 1st United Methodist Church, Room 152, on Colorado Parkway. Visitors are always welcome!
