TSSA’s Legacy of Giving

TSSA has chosen the Shriners Hospitals for Children, and specifically the hospital in Galveston, as the beneficiary of their fundraising efforts for 19 years, raising a total of $1.6 million. The reason becomes clear during a tour of the hospital and the results are evident in the care provided. Their slogan, “Love to the Rescue,” is very much in evidence. Money is raised through events at the annual Big Ideas in Storage conference via a charity poker tournament, auctions, raffles and direct donations.

Shriners Hospitals for Children has a mission to:

Provide the highest quality care to children with neuromusculoskeletal conditions, burn injuries and other special healthcare needs within a compassionate, family-centered and collaborative care environment.

Texas Hold ‘Em Charity
Poker Tournament

This fun event has become a tradition at the annual conference. Players can join in the fun for a $125 entry fee. Even novice players can have a fun time so don’t be shy if you’ve never played. For a small donation of $30, spectators can enjoy libations and cheer for their favorite poker player, or just sit back and watch the action.
