Join Us for the 2020 Texas Hold ‘Em Tournament for Alzheimer’s Care & Support!

We want you to help win the fight against Alzheimer’s disease and have some Texas Hold ‘Em poker tournament fun, too! We are holding our seventh Texas Hold ‘Em Poker Tournament on Saturday August 29, 2020.

New location! It is now at the Davidson Center building of the U.S. Space and Rocket Center, Huntsville, AL. Take the Space and Rocket Center exit off of I-565, go west, past the entrance to the Marriott hotel, and look for a sign on where to turn in. You will see balloons and banners on the east side of the building, and that’s where we are having the tournament.


If you want to register for the tournament and secure your seat, or make a donation, please go to the tab entitled “REGISTER FOR THE TOURNAMENT”.

The tournament is to recognize and support the fight against the degenerative brain disease of Alzheimer’s. Teledyne Brown Engineering’s Roger Herdy is wanting to know who is “all in” for a winning chance to ease the suffering of Alzheimer’s disease! All of this year’s proceeds will go the Alzheimer’s Association, a non-profit organization, who fund research that continue to help the lives of those living Alzheimer’s disease and those who love them. YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!

So, help us “chip away” at Alzheimer’s disease, and have a Texas Hold ‘Em terrific blast doing so! The tournament starts at 6 p.m. and lasts until only the Grand Prize Winner remains, with all the participants at the final table receiving prizes. And this year we have added a “Second Chance” tournament for folks who go bust after the re-buy period ends, with one winner-take-all prize. All proceeds go only toward the Alzheimer’s Association, a non-profit organization. Everyone will be a winner if we help fight Alzheimer’s! Seating is limited so reserve your spot at a table today!
