Thank you to everyone who helped make All-in ‘10 a success. Together, All-In players, volunteers, donors, and supporters raised $16,500 for the Bridge Program — and donations keep coming through the website every day.
All-In ‘10 Champion: Michael Modecki (Congratulations, Michael!). Other players at the final table were Peter Albers, Chris Bautista, Nick Preston, Brenna Youngblood, Wendy Ortiz, Caroline Phelps, Melanie McNair, and Daisy Eagan. It was an intense game, right up the end. Take a look at Michael’s winning hand, above.
This year’s top fundraisers: Kirsten Grimstad, Cindy Short, Caroline Phelps, Melanie McNair, and Jennifer Benson. Thank you (and all fundraisers) for your dedicated work.
All-in ‘10 Volunteers: Nina Frick, Liz Janssen, Tim Malone, Patrick Malone, Flint, Burcu Harbert, Henry Campagna, Jim Gatewood, Caroline Phelps, Debi Klein, Joanna Gerber, Karen Black, Angie O’Neal, China Brezner, Cindy Short, Daisy Eagan, Jennifer Benson, Chris Bautista, Jeanell Suggs, Jan Abrams, Myron Davis, Stacy Hess, Lisa Lepore, David Tripp, and Milli Abiera (with her fancy costume).
Of course, this is just the tip of the iceberg. From the beginning, we had tremendous support from staff, faculty, students, alums, Bridge students, Bridge alums, Texas Hold ‘Em enthusiasts, and Bridge supporters. We also had amazing dealers from West LA Poker, quality pizza from Two Boots, and space from the Echoplex, along with many donated prizes from companies and organizations around the city. Together, we’re helping carry on the legacy that Shari Foos established when she founded Bridge eleven years ago.
Any thanks I can give will feel like an understatement, but still — thank you, everyone!
