3rd Annual Miracle of Giving Poker Tournament Announced

Erie, PA— Presque Isle Downs & Casino announced that the 3rd Annual Miracle of Giving Poker Tournament would be held Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 1:30pm to benefit the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.

The tournament features a $75 buy-in and each participant who brings in an unwrapped toy will receive an additional 500 chips on top of the 5,000 starting chips. There is a ten toy limit; however, people are encouraged to bring as many unwrapped toys as they want.

“We are looking forward to once again partnering with the Toys for Tots Foundation to help make a difference with the children in our community”, stated Mike Tamburelli, Vice President and General Manager of Presque Isle Downs & Casino.

The mission of the US Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program is to collect new, unwrapped toys from October through December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to children in need within the community.

Presque Isle Downs & Casino remains dedicated to supporting the community and is sponsoring various charities throughout the holiday season including Second Harvest Community Food Bank, The United Way of Erie County, Toys for Tots and Presents for Patients.

Boxes for the Toys for Tots will be located at the casino’s main and north entrance. There will also be collection tables on Sunday, December 8th in The Downs Clubhouse & Lounge for the Miracle of Giving Tournament. Toys will be collected from 11:30am to 1:30pm. Registration for the tournament also begins at 11:30am.
