The funds will help the chapter continue its ongoing advertising efforts. 

The tournament winners were:

  • 1st Place: Justin League, United Community CU

The poker tournament is one of many efforts the Houston Chapter of Credit Union supports the community and enhances the quality of life in the Greater Houston Area.
