Get ready for the Second Annual Stocktwits Community Members Charity Poker Tournament benefiting the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance. The Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance is an organization dedicated to finding a cure for tuberous sclerosis while improving the lives of those affected. Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is a genetic disorder that causes tumors to form in many different organs, primarily in the brain, eyes, heart, kidneys, liver, skin and lungs. This charity hits home for me, as I have a friend who has a child with this disease and the child has already had several surgeries despite being a toddler. As a fellow parent, I could never in my wildest dreams imagine having to struggle with watching my children suffer through a disease like this. One problem with this disease is that it is relatively unknown, so hopefully we can also raise awareness while also raising funds. Last year, as a community we raised over $3,000 and hopefully this year we can top that number.
This years tournament will be held on November 7th at 6:30pm EST on Last years tournament was a blast and this year should have even more of your favorite Stocktwits community members participating. This will be a great chance to compete directly with Howard Lindzon, Phil Pearlman, Brian Shannon (@alphatrends), John Lee (weeklyTA), Jim Gobetz (aiki14), Mike Bellafiore (@smbcapital), @stockguy22, and others. In addition to the cash prize pool, there will also be Stocktwits prizes awarded for knocking out certain players, as well as being able to talk some smack on the stream throughout the evening.
