Posted on June 3, 2015

TORRANCE, Calif. -- The annual Greater California Livery Association’s (GCLA) Texas Hold’Em Poker Tournament is going five years strong and picking up momentum with sponsors and giveaways.

This will be the third time the event will be held at the SoCal Penske Cadillac Dealership in Torrance. The doors open at 6:30 p.m., Saturday, June 6, with tournament play expected to wrap up around 11 p.m.

There will be a number of donated items up for auction and for raffle winners, and for non-poker players there will be Black Jack and Roulette so you can still play some chips while networking with other limo operators.

Among giveaways will be an Apple watch, a 55-inch flat screen TV, a free pass to the 2016 LCT Leadership Summit in Miami Beach, Fla., and two passes to LCT-NLA Show East in Atlantic City, N.J., Nov. 8-10. So far, the event has drawn support from 27 sponsors, including LCT Magazine.
