Go For Broke National Education Center (GFBNEC) is pleased to announce its first event of the year, the Go For Broke Texas Hold’em Charity Poker Tournament!

The grand prize features a 7-night stay in the Caribbean at The Verandah Resort and Spa in Antigua including roundtrip airfare for 2 from LAX. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top 10 players.

Proceeds from the charity poker tournament will benefit GFBNEC’s Hanashi Oral History and educational programs. The Hanashi Oral History Program is one of the most extensive oral history collections of its kind. The program has conducted over 1,100 interviews with Japanese American soldiers from WWII preserving their life stories.

Using its one-of-a-kind oral history collection, GFBNEC is able to develop and grow educational programs with teacher training resources to educate our nation’s youth about the contemporary rights, responsibilities, and fundamental values of American citizenship. To this day, GFBNEC’s educational curriculum has reached over 100,000 students across the nation.

Help us continue our work to preserve and educate others about the Nisei veterans' story!
