On Dec. 22, The Bicycle Casino in Los Angeles will host a charity poker tournament to benefit Mary’s Kitchen, an organization dedicated to feeding and clothing the homeless.

The $100+$20 buy-in tournament will award cash payouts to all of the final tablists and players will also be eligible to collect $100 bounties by knocking out six designated players.

Of the total prize pool, 50 percent will go to charity and the other 50 percent will be divided among the winners.

Mary’s Kitchen is located in Orange, California and was founded by Mary McAnena in 1984. Sadly, Mary passed away in 2003 at the age of 100. Since then her vision and services have continued; run by volunteers and the entire operation is funded solely by private donations. Mary’s Kitchen feeds the homeless a hot meal six days a week, provides clothes for those in need, an area to clean up and a laundry area.

The Bicycle Casino is located in Bell Gardens, California. For more information, call (562)806-4646.
