PoCA Donates $35,000 to Princess Margaret Hospital!
On September 9th, 2011, Poker for Charity (PoCA) Chairman David Nixon presented a cheque for $35,000 to Ian de Nazareth from Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) to finish their fundraising for the purchase of a surgery microscope to be used to treat eye problems in children, before going to the surgery to meet PMH Surgeon Kate, who explained what the new microscope would be used for in more depth.
Visit the Poker for Charity Website to see the video of the presentation, or directly from our Youtube channel!
Without the support of our players, PoCA and other organisations would not be able to raise funds through poker to contribute back into the Western Australian Community's Health and Welfare needs in ways such as this.
Every time you play for money with WAPL, or buy a $5 PoCA Cash Raffle for a chance to win the raffle at one of our events, you are helping raise money that gets spent on worthy causes such as this donation to Princess Margaret Hospital.
Thanks to all WAPL members for your contributions. We are very proud to be part of something that brings our members great entertainment, whilst also helping Poker for Charity Association supporting the community where it's most needed.
We can all be proud of ourselves for our efforts.
Your WAPL Team
