Nearly 150 people enjoyed a fun night out in Boston’s North Shore playing Texas Hold ’em Poker, bidding on silent auction items, eating complementary food, taking a chance on raffles and just getting together with friends at PRF’s 3rd annual tournament  at the Holy Ghost Society Cultural Center, 20 Howley Street, Peabody, Massachusetts. 
Many thanks to event coordinators Maura Smith and Kim Paratore, volunteers Marni Correra, Scott Kennedy and Vickie Robbin, and our many sponsors, players and attendees. A special thank you to SAM, who, after telling everyone they were all winners, started the night off with a resounding “shuffle up and deal!”
