The LC35 Athletic Club was formed in 1984 to promote friendly competition, good sportsmanship, and a social outlet for its members – Carlsbad residents aged 35 and older.

Begun in 2011 as a way to give back to the community, the first poker tournament was held at the then under construction Bressi Ranch Boys & Girls Clubhouse.  Since its inception, the event has nearly tripled in attendance and raised nearly $400,000.

“There were 15 poker tables and close to 150 players,” said Tournament Director Rob Holzman. “In the end, it’s the kids who win. Over $41,000 in net proceeds was raised for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Carlsbad!”

Gold Sponsor of the event was Jim Morrison Insurance Services.

Adding to the atmosphere was catering from Gregorio’s Restaurant, Baja Jerky and BJ’s Restaurant, a generous donation by HRE Performance Wheels for a full set of custom wheels which was auctioned off to the highest bidder, and large screen TVs broadcasting the blinds as well as football games, courtesy of Home AV-TV & Design.

With play going on well into the night, Scott McGhee was awarded the coveted Winners Bracelet and selected a week’s stay in Maui as his prize. Jamie Stout was the runner-up.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Carlsbad has played an integral role in the Carlsbad community since 1952, providing programs and services to thousands of young people.   Boys & Girls Clubs of Carlsbad invites you to tour their Clubhouse, and see how lives are changed on a daily basis. The organization is 100% funded by local donors.  For more information, call (760) 444-4893, email info@bgccarlsbad.org, or visit www.bgccarlsbad.org.
