Ante4Autism, the annula charity poker tournament that coincides with Las Vegas Market, recently announced that Englander and Fiesta Furniture both signed on as sponsors of the 13th Annual event. “We welcome both companies to our great group of sponsors this year,” founder Doug Krinsky recently stated.
“We are less than 3 weeks away from our poker tournament and we expect a great turnout of local players, furniture industry folks, professional poker players and celebrities,” Krinsky went on to say. Kevyn Major Howard (pictured with Co-Host Karina Jett) is scheduled to appear and play again this year. Kevyn has been a great supporter of the cause.
