“We are so grateful to be able to hold our event once more in the wonderful poker rooms at the Palm Beach Kennel Club, where we can welcome even more players,” said Keri Morrison, organization founder and mother of Jake, who was lost in a tragic drowning incident. “This event helps us raise funds to support drowning prevention and to create awareness of the importance of safety measures that should be in place in and around water. And we do it all while having a great time together.”
Food and drinks are available at the Palm Beach Kennel Club’s Paddock Restaurant and snack bar. Space is limited, and tickets can be purchased by visiting www.livelikejake.com/events.
The tournament will take place at the Palm Beach Kennel Club’s second floor poker room. The Kennel Club is located at 1111 N. Congress Avenue in West Palm Beach.

Committed to honoring the life and joy of Jake Roarke Morrison, the foundation’s mission is to raise awareness for drowning prevention. This is achieved by providing infant self-rescue swim lesson scholarships to those who cannot afford them and also by providing financial assistance to those families who have lost a child or have a child with critical care needs.
Thousands of children have learned lifesaving skills as a result of the foundation’s scholarships and ISR lessons in the foundation’s indoor heated swimming pool. Learn more at www.livelikejake.com.
