Poker 4 Parkinson's is a night that has it all!  Hosted by The Joan Elizabeth Foundation, this Texas Hold 'Em event is ideal for players of any skill level or experience, and great for spectators.  The Poker 4 Parkinson's events include a Poker Tournament, Casino Games with great prizes,  H'ors D'oeuvres, and celebrity guests.  We are all about having fun and being a part of the community we all live in and enjoy!  We pursue our goal of curing Parkinson's Disease  in honor of Joan and for everyone we know who is currently battling against this horrible affliction.  All monies raised are donated to researchers and scientists in the form of grant assistance to help fund ongoing research.

Our Mission

Our mission is to find better treatments and ultimately cures for the movement disorders Dystonia and Parkinson's through the charitable funding of medical research, and to raise awareness of the diseases.

“We can all make a difference in the lives of others in need, because it is the most simple of gestures that make the most significant of differences.”
