Swagger Poker Showdown Revs the Motor for Charity on 9/16 in LA!

Love poker? Then you need to get tickets to the Swagger Poker Showdown on Friday 9/16 to be held within a section of the Petersen Automotive Museum. Presented by Swagger, Los Angeles’ premiere event website, proceeds from the evening will benefit New Directions, a local charity providing comprehensive services to Los Angeles’ veteran heroes.

Swagger co-founders and Air Force veterans, Matt Richter-Sand and Bobby Lady realize that many of their fellow veterans returning home from service overseas have difficulties adapting to civilian life.


Air Force Veteran & Swagger Poker Showdown Co-Producer, Matt Sand (and fellow Air Force Officer)
Matt explains,

“Adjusting to civilian life is hard for so many veterans, especially those who have deployed to the war-zone. We’re trying to help LA’s 8,000+ homeless (11% of homeless veterans nation-wide) get their lives back.”

Bobby continues,

“Vietnam Veterans were left behind, so we have a lot of catching up to do while a whole new generation returns from ongoing wars. I was impressed with the breadth of services New Directions offers, and it’s up to us to support them.”

The Swagger Poker Showdown, a No Limit Texas Hold ‘Em Charity Poker Tournament will begin at 7:00 pm with professional instructors offering crash courses in Poker; professional Vegas dealers and tables, premium open bar, celebrity players and more.
Tickets:
