Las Vegas’ Santa Fe Station Hotel and Casino was the site of Sunday’s Fueled by the Fallen/Toys for Tots Poker Tournament and Toy Drive.   Active and retired military personnel and poker enthusiasts crowded into the Santa Fe Station’s Poker Room for a fun day of poker and to support 2 great charities: Fulled by the Fallen, whose Memorial Race Car Tour displays allow the public to honor fallen military and police personnel and the Marines Toys for Tots program which helps bring toys to children in need during the holidays.

The Poker tournament raised $1,000 for charity and was won by Rob of Las Vegas.  Toys for Tots received a lot of great toys and donations which will go a long way in making a needy child’s holiday a bit brighter.
