Texas Hold’em Tournament to Benefit Kawasaki Kids Foundation
On Saturday, February 10th, the Kawasaki Kids Foundation will be hosting its second annual Pucks and Poker Tournament at the Budweiser Event Center. The proceeds from this charity event will go directly to the Kawasaki Kids Foundation.
Kawasaki Kids Foundation was founded in 2013 by the Logan family, after their 3 year old son Cooper, was diagnosed with *Kawasaki Disease in 2012. At first, unfortunately Cooper was misdiagnosed with an appendectomy. Cooper's heart surgeries and kidney transplant could have been avoided if he was correctly diagnosed with Kawasaki Disease in the beginning. The Logan family knew they could make a difference by starting this foundation to help support research and awareness.
*The disease is named after Tomisaku Kawasaki, a Japanese pediatrician who first described the illness in 1967.
