Skyview Elementary School Charity Poker Tournament

Join us for the second annual Windy Crest Poker Room Charity Poker Tournament.

4pm tournament start - Registration starts at 3pm - Late entry until 5:30PM

This year's benefactor is Skyview Elementary School.

Skyview Elementary serves 800 children in the Forest Meadow neighborhood. 86 percent of our students are on a reduced lunch program and 680 (or more) are living at or below the poverty line. In recent years, Skyview has seen a swell of support from the surrounding neighborhood as well as a revitalization of their parent-lead PTA under the leadership of Principal Ingrid Dodd. In 2015, the PTA funded and built a beautiful school garden. In 2016, they put funding in place for a communication package that includes a translation program and an electronic marquee. In 2017 we helped Skyview fund and implement a literacy initiative. Skyview is doing GREAT things and is looking to partner with the wider community to achieve their goals. Let us be a part of their momentum!

Snacks, Beverages, and Dinner will be provided as part of the entry fee. There will be beer, wine, sodas, and water available. Table side drink service is provided.

$100 entry fee - ($40 to prize pool, $60 to Skyview - food and beverages included thanks to our generous sponsors)

All Players Welcome! (Co-Ed)

I may be in Dallas in the next couple months for a working vacation of sorts. My wife's sister lives in Duncanville, and wants to hire me to do some painting at her workplace. If it happens fortuitously to be that week, I'll definitely join in!

@CraigT78 , even if my trip doesn't line up with the tourney, I might contact you about joining your home game for a night, if that would be ok.

I'd love to visit Windy Crest!

We have nearly 70 lbs of meat on order for the BBQ dinner & a full beer sponsorship from the local brewery- this is an event not to be missed!!

Looks like I’m going to miss it. Not sure yet if I’m go coming for sure, but if I do, it will be a bit later in the month. Sounds like a great day—sorry I’ll miss it!

Craig, I'm willing to forward it, but I need a way for them to contact you in the email I'd send. Do you want to email me the contact info?
