March, 2010: Everyone’s a Winner at PRF’s 5th Annual Poker for Progeria Game
In March, nearly 120 people had a blast playing Texas Hold ’em Poker and Black Jack, bidding on fabulous auction items, eating, drinking, and socializing in Peabody, Massachusetts at this increasingly popular event. Many thanks to long-time event chair Maura Smith, the many sponsors, volunteers and food donors, and everyone who came – you helped raise nearly $9,000!

The excitement grew when the final table of ten gathered to compete for the top cash prizes.
