St. Louis Arc

Supporting People with Developmental Disabilities and Their Families Since 1950

Thanks to All the Texas Hold ‘Em Players Who Played in Our 2014 Poker Tournament

 


The St. Louis Arc's 10th annual "Showdown for the St. Louis Arc" was another big success! 160 players put on their best poker faces as they took part in the friendly competition and raised funds for the St. Louis Arc. The event, held Friday, August 22, 2014 at the Hilton Frontenac St. Louis, raised close to $28,000 to benefit the agency’s programs for people with developmental disabilities.

Mary Beckerle spoke at the begining of the evening with a few words about what the Arc has meant to her son, Jeff, over the years.

Trophies and bragging rights were awarded to the top three finishers:  Third place went to Tom Coughlin; Second place was awarded to Jim Eberhardt  and Dustin Wilcox from Centene  was the Tournament Champion.

Many thanks to our volunteers who pitched in, including St. Louis Arc employees and friends. We would also like to thank our event sponsors Centene Charitable Foundation, Total Rewards Strategies and Anheuser-Busch.
