“It was our honor to partner with Irreverent Warriors for this tournament,” said Larry Buck, President, Seminole Casino Coconut Creek. “Irreverent Warriors is a terrific organization that supports our veterans every day. It is our sincere hope that the money raised will assist with their important mission, which is to improve mental health and prevent suicide.”

“We are thankful that Seminole Gaming and Seminole Casino Coconut Creek partnered with us to create an amazing poker tournament where past and present service members as well as supporters came together to further our mission. That mission provides a ‘safe’ place for veterans to let their walls down, connect with warriors who have had similar experiences, and enjoy a day of camaraderie and laughter without feeling like they have to perform or be judged,” said Cindy McNally, President/CEO, Irreverent Warriors.
