We are reaching out to the poker world to request assistance for one of our own. John Colville, former Executive at Golden Nugget Casino in Las Vegas has been dealing with health issues for a couple of years. He recently experienced a massive stroke and passed away Nov 11th, 2015.
John has been a friend to many in the industry for years. He created the Grand Poker Series held annually at the Golden Nugget and attended by thousands of players. He also supported many poker entities such as Poker After Dark, High Stakes Poker, WPT Boot Camp, LIPS Tour and the Women in Poker Hall of Fame. He hosted charity events benefiting Autism, MS, Veterans, local shelters, Boys and Girls Club, children’s programs, and Poker Gives.
John has a family he supports and has been out of work for several months. The family could use all our support as they prepare for the inevitable.
If you have ever played a hand of poker at the Golden Nugget while John was at the helm, we’re asking for you to please consider supporting the family at this time. Any amount is appreciated including the small blind.
The John Colville Fund has been established through Poker Gives and is tax deductible.
We thank you for your generous support and prayers of his family. PLEASE SHARE THE LINK TO THIS PAGE and TWEET @PokerGives #JohnInTheBigGameNow
