Jerry Azumah Announces Texas Hold’em Fundraiser Tournament
Former University of New Hampshire and Chicago Bears standout, Jerry Azumah, has just announced his Texas Hold’em Poker Tournament, which serves as a fundraiser for his non-profit organization, ASAP. ASAP, which stands for the Azumah Student Assistance Program, provides scholarships and guidance to disadvantaged youth. The motivation behind the organization comes directly from Azumah’s past experiences and the help and guidance he received himself. The event will take place at the Hotel Sax on May 13th, and will feature a slew of athletes and celebrities. RubyHornet will be there as well, as we’ve signed on to be the official online sponsor of the event. Keeping with that, we will soon be debuting an in-depth interview with the last player to score at touchdown at old Soldier Field, as well as giving you insight into Jerry Azumah’s true passions, music and fashion.
