Super Bowl poker tournament gives proceeds to Niles athletics

NILES, Mich. -- Nearly 100 people from Michiana spent their Super Bowl Sunday giving to charity.

The Third Annual Joey Armadillo's Super Bowl Poker Tournament kicked off, just before the game. Joey Armadillo's hosts’ poker seven days a week, but Sunday was a special exception.

Proceeds from the tournament went to the Niles High School Athletic Department.

“It’s very hard to beat them, some of the best players in the city are here,” said poke player Richard “The Donkey” Young. “It’s good comradely, good way to pass the time, big screen TVs, get to see the Super Bowl, everybody is rooting for somebody. There’s a lot of excitement.”   

The tournament brought in nearly $3,000 for Niles High School athletics.
