About the Mansfield Poker Tour and Mansfield Energy Corp, in partnership with Ed Tessaro, organized the first Texas Hold’em Poker Tournament during the Mansfield Golf Classic in 2013. Ed Tessaro, an Atlanta-based Muscular Dystrophy Association Champion who was diagnosed with ALS in 2009, helped Mansfield draw a tremendous amount of support for the poker event, which led to the launch of the Mansfield Poker Tour. The Mansfield Poker Tour consists of several regional Texas Hold’em poker play-ins across the country leading up to the finals table at the annual Mansfield Golf Classic. Poker Tour events are hosted by local sponsors, with proceeds earmarked for MDA’s ALS focused research programs.
The 4th Annual Mansfield/Ed Tessaro Texas Hold’em Poker Tournament was held on June 6, 2017 at Reynolds Lake Oconee in Greensboro, GA. We are extremely thankful to Ed and his wife Judy for partnering with us to strengthen our contributions to MDA. To date, Mansfield has raised nearly $6M for MDA, enhancing its ability to invest in research and find cures to help kids and adults affected by muscle diseases live longer and grow stronger.
All donations to the Mansfield Golf Classic and the Mansfield Poker Tour are tax-deductible.
