Mansfield Energy Corp is excited to present the 4th Annual Ed Tessaro Texas Hold’em Poker Tournament on June 6th in Greensboro, GA. This event, which culminates the 2017 Mansfield Poker Tour, will be held in conjunction with Casino & Poker Night during the 31st Annual Mansfield Golf Classic. Proceeds from the Mansfield Golf Classic and the Mansfield Poker Tour benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association. All donations are tax-deductible.
The Texas Hold’em Poker Tournament, during the Mansfield Golf Classic, was first organized in 2013 to honor Ed Tessaro, an Atlanta-based MDA Champion who was diagnosed with ALS in 2009. This effort was a great success, and led to the birth of the Mansfield Poker Tour, which consists of several regional Texas Hold’em poker play-ins across the country leading up to the finals table on June 6th. Poker Tour events are hosted by local sponsors, with proceeds earmarked for MDA’s ALS focused research programs. We are extremely thankful to Ed and his wife Judy for partnering with us to strengthen our contributions to MDA. In addition to our MDA fundraising campaign, the Tessaros co-chair the Annual MDA Night of Hope gala for ALS research, helping to raise $6.4M to date for MDA Regional Clinics across the country.
