Santa Anita will host a charity poker tournament Oct. 23 to benefit the Folds of Honor Foundation, which supports families of fallen or disable veterans. Players will make a $300 charitable donation, which includes a day at the races and a night of No-Limit Texas Hold 'Em. There will also be a silent auction.
Folds of Honor has awarded more than 35,000 educational scholarships to the families of fallen or disabled veterans and will be represented by retired United States Marine Corps Sergeant and P.O.W. Rocky Sickmann, one of 65 Americans taken hostage by Iranian extremists in 1979 and held captive for 444 days.
