Texas Hold 'Em Benefit

In a dialysis blog you might be a bit surprised by this post's title, so let me explain.

Alport Syndrome Hope for Cure Foundation will be the recipient of funds raised at the 3rd Annual Texas Hold 'Em Tournament held on 11th November at the Gleneagles Country Club in Plano, Dallas.

The goal is to raise money to run a scientific research meeting into Alport Syndrome, a rare kidney disease, affecting mainly boys. While some people may go to the tournament to win prizes, and plenty are on offer, just remember that, like many events, there is also a caring side and children may benefit for the event.
