Ante Up for Charity

by Ron Hogan

At the risk of seeming blatantly promotional of my friends and their books, I wanted to share the latest news from Toby Leah Bochan even though I just told you about her poker lessons, because there's a good cause involved as well. The Children's Aid Society is holding a Blue Jean Ball Saturday night to raise money, and it includes a Texas Hold 'Em tournament ($500 buy-in) for which Toby is donating lessons and copies of The Badass Girl's Guide to Poker as prizes. (The top five players will win nice long vacations in places like St. Thomas and Sun Valley.) I won't be able to make it, but good luck to any of you reading this who end up at the high-stakes table...
