TORRANCE, Calif. -- The Greater California Livery Association (GCLA) will hold its fourth annual Texas Hold’Em Poker Tournament at the Penske Cadillac Dealership in Torrance this year. It will have limo operators from all over the state coming together for a fun-filled night of spirited poker competition, all in the name of raising funds for GCLA lobbying efforts, as well as the Knights of Pythias Youth Camp for inner city youths.

The event has been a successful night for the association. Last year’s turn out brought 65 limo industry card sharks to compete, with more than 80 GCLA members in attendance, and the event raised over $18,000 by night's end.

This year’s poker night will have the first place winner getting a new 50-in. flat screen TV donated by Grech Motors. Payouts will pay all the way down to sixth runner up, and their will be a great silent and live auction for sports memorabilia, spa retreats, time shares, dinners, and more.
