Walking through the Salut To Warriors event, PokerNews has spotted 1989 bracelet winner Mike Sexton.
After winning the WSOP Tournament of Champions in 2006 for $1,000,000, Mike Sexton, donated half of his earnings to any charity's to his desire. Two organizations he donated too are two of his favorites, the Paralyzed Veterans of America and Wounded Warriors, both received $100,000 each from Sexton.
“I love that the WSOP is supporting those who have served, and are raising money for veteran organizations,” Sexton stated, “To me, a former military man, this is the highlight addition of the 50th WSOP.”
“I would certainly hope the Salute to Warriors tournament at the WSOP will not only be popular, but become an annual fixture,” he says. “I believe nearly all players would like to support those in the armed forces and the military charities that will benefit from this event.”
