Healthcare Associates invited vendors and customers to sponsor the event, netting a donation of over $20,000 for the programs offered at Irving Cares. This year’s efforts focused on raising milk money for the Food Pantry at Irving Cares. As the last man standing in the poker tournament, Kyle Taylor won a fantastic Aces in the Hole bracelet, commissioned specially for the event.

Our thanks go out to Dr. Mark Anderson, Jennifer Walters and the staff and supporters of Healthcare Associates for their dedication in helping Irving Cares. What started as a motorcycle rally and food drive in 2013 has blossomed to a financially impactful very special event for Irving Cares.
