Poker Players Prove that we have more FUN at the Discovery Center!


Five tables of serious, and some not so serious, poker players, each with a stack of chips started the night’s play. As the evening wore on and players were eliminated, a play-for-fun blackjack game gave retired tournament players a place to continue the fun, while waiting for the final poker hand to be played out. The crowd grew as the final three players, then two continued on – stacks of chips piled high in front of each one. And the clock ticked down…


For those who stuck around to the end…the last winning hand was made by Josh Cantor – one of our table sponsors, California Water Sports, and amazing supporter of all things Agua Hedionda!


Josh went home with a three-night stay in Palm Springs, a golf package for two, and $500 in playing chips for Harrah’s!



The runner up position was held by Michael Bacon, taking home a bottle of Venom Vodka, White & Red Pegasus Estate wine, and fresh caught, flash frozen Alaskan fish.


Congratulations to the winners – and everyone who came out to play on a beautiful summer night at the Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation Discovery Center!
