The Jimmy Mac Poker Tournament, benefitting Special Olympics Texas (SOTX), will be held from 3 to 10:30 p.m., July 21, at Dave and Buster’s, in Frisco. Proceeds from the tournament and an upcoming golf tournament in August support year-round sports training and competition for more than 6,300 children and adults with intellectual disabilities in the Greater Dallas area. Registration is free, but a suggested donation of $50 goes to local SOTX athletes.
There will be professional card dealers, a cash bar, food and prize drawings. Awards for top finishers include a winner’s bracelet, golf and dinner packages and gift cards. For early registration online, players receive 6,000 chips instead of 5,000. If players bring in five cans of food as a donation to the North Texas Food Bank, they will receive an extra 1,000 chips.
Jim, “Jimmy Mac,” McAninch, a devoted local family man, had a passion for the game of poker. After his death, the tournament was established in his name to raise funds for nonprofit projects in the area.
Location: 2601 Preston Rd., Stonebriar Mall, Frisco. For more information, call 214-943-9981 or visit SOTX.org/JimmyMacPoker to register online.
