Poker Gives

Serving Families in need

Poker Gives is the Poker Fundraising Division of Vegas Connected, Inc. an all-volunteer non-profit organization.

Poker Gives was originally founded by poker industry professionals Mike Sexton, Linda Johnson, Jan Fisher, and Lisa Tenner as a way for poker players and the poker industry to give back to worthwhile charity organizations.


In early 2015, the founders passed the baton to Lupe Soto, a poker industry professional who sat at the helm of Vegas Connected, a direct service charity. Now Poker Gives is the fundraising arm of the charity. Funds are raised through poker events and private donations and distributed to our direct service programs. Homeless outreach, youth services and assisting military families.
