The Youth Home Casino Night and Poker Tournament held July 19th, 2014 was a wonderful success and we reached our goal of raising over $11,000! Thank you to the 117 poker players and other countless casino patrons who came out, tried their luck, and competed for over $21,000 in assorted prizes. The excitement in the Texas Hold'em Tournament was heightened with the addition of the "Celebrity Bounties" where local players tried to knock out local celebs like Wally Hall, Justin Lewis, Chris Kane, and Matty T.


The staff at Next Level Events went above and beyond and the evening was catered by Bar Louie and beer and wine was donated by 107 Liquor. Also, special thanks to Arkansas Casino Entertainment for sponsoring the casino area and to the countless local businesses who supported this great night for a great cause!

The top three Texas Hold'em finishers were:

1st - Rusty Gosvener - $2,000 Gift Certificate to Family Leisure
2nd - Matt Odom (2013 Champion) - $2,500 towards granite counter tops from Natural Stone Concepts
3rd - Mark Ellis - $1,500 Gift Certificate to Family Leisure


Thank you to all of the volunteers who helped make the event a fun success.

Next year's event coming in July 2015 promises to be bigger and better and we hope you will make plans to join us!
