Local News - Poker News and Star Wars Variants and Image Comics "Pride" Variants
I just returned from another hard day of passing out food to the homeless in lower downtown Denver. Our
crowds were slightly smaller at this time of the year, as many of our healthier clients elect to walk
to distant soup kitchens. We still provided over 500 people (including many children and people in wheelchairs)
with about 6,000 lbs of food, most of which was paid for through your donations on Free Comic Book Day.

Speaking of poker, our next
Texas Hold'em charity poker tournament

will be a benefit to help cover the operating costs of the
International Court Council,
which provides governance and oversight to all 70 of our local
Imperial Court of the Rocky Mountain Empire.
(combined) raise several million dollars each year for their local 501-C3 charitable organizations, so
solvent definitely contributes to an awesomely positive cause.
Having Fun playing poker!
As has been the case with our past
Texas Hold'em Poker Tournaments,
we are asking everyone to sign up in
advance, and are offering early registrants a $25 Mile High Comics gift certificate as a reward for doing so.
I encourage anyone thinking of playing to sign up immediately, as we have a limited number of seats available.
Cost is $25 to register, but as I mentioned earlier, you are immediately reimburse for this outlay via a
$25 Mile High Comics gift certificate. Our tournaments typically attract about 60 players, and they are a
lot of fun!
