Malvern poker tourney will raise funds to fight bone disease
Area poker players looking to test their skills against a pro while donating to a good cause can get their card-playing fix next weekend in Malvern, at the Mallie's Friends Charity Poker No-Limit Texas Hold'em tournament.
Mallie Holman, a kindergartner at Glen Acres Elementary School in the West Chester Area School District, has Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI),commonly known as Brittle Bone Disease. The five-year-old has suffered more than two dozen fractures, including a life-threatening skull fracture. In search of a way to raise funds for OI research, her family created the non-profit in her name.
