The Mya Lin Terry Foundation Pokerthon


We are super excited to announce details to our first event of 2019!  Poker pro, Lisa Pickell is teaming up with PPU for The Mya Lin Terry Foundation Pokerthon, which will run Friday, April 19, 2019 through Sunday, April 21, 2019. 

Lisa will be playing the $1m GTD Main Event on Friday, and will hopefully find a bag to play for the title on Sunday! 

Rick will be playing some online events over the weekend (schedule to be announced soon).

Both Lisa and Rick are looking for some amazing people to either pledge any amount you'd like during their events or to make a one-time donation.  You can choose to sponsor just one or both and you can choose to pledge in one or more of their events. 

We are also looking for more poker players to join us over the weekend.  You choose your own events to play!
