Raising funds for charity through a poker tournament is not a new concept, but when Women In Distress set out to raise awareness about Domestic Violence in the Poker Community and show how poker can be a positive force for good, Bryan Oulton, owner of All In Free Poker, was the natural choice. Three years ago Bryanâ€™s mother was killed by his father, and since then, Bryan has become a strong advocate for victims of domestic violence. Along with his business partner, Sandy Swartzbaugh, Bryan brought together the Isle Casino, Women In Distress, and the Sun Sentinel Childrenâ€™s Fund to create the PermaPlate Poker Tournament, with the aim of making the evening, not only an annual fundraiser for these two charities, but also a new way to engage the poker community in ending domestic violence. $200 buy in donation is required, which includes one tournament entry and one seat at a champagne brunch at Farmerâ€™s Pick buffet from 10am â€“ 3pm. Those who wish to attend but do not play poker can purchase a brunch ticket for $20.
