With one busy weekend behind us, and an even busier one just ahead, everyone from MTI wants to take the time to thank everyone who came out to the Emerald Coast Poker Run!
The event, sponsored by the Emerald Coast Foundation, raises money for a number of children’s charities. Chris Sehman, the foundation’s president, said they hoped to raise a $125,000 this year for the Eleanor J. Johnson Youth Center, AMI Kids, Children in Crisis and Horizons. Even with last year’s rain, Sehman said the foundation raised about $105,000. This year, it already had gotten almost $100,000 in sponsor money from local businesses. Click here to read more.
