Charity poker tourney ‘a huge success’

$3,200 raised for Canucks Autism Network

The inaugural  charity poker tournament and silent auction to raise funds for the Canucks Autism Network was, according to organizer Bob Coltart, “a huge success.”

A total of 87 players battled for the $1,000 top prize, won by Eric Lauinger.

The total prize pool was $2,000, with the top five finishers getting paid.

“We also had the silent auction, where 24 local businesses combined to support that great event, then we also had the Henrik Sedin signed hockey stick and the Ryan Miller signed jersey, sent to us courtesy of Roger’s Arena,” said Coltart. “All in all, we raised $3,200.

“It’s such a worthwhile cause. They do so much for young kids and their families.”
