Poker tournament benefits St. Pete woman needing kidney transplant

St. Petersburg, FL (TBO.com) - A Texas Hold’em poker tournament Friday at the Derby Lane Poker Room, 10490 Gandy Blvd., will benefit a St. Petersburg woman who needs a kidney transplant.

Becky Tower, 61, has been undergoing three-hour dialysis treatments three days a week since an operation last year damaged her kidneys. While the treatments keep her going, her doctors say she needs a kidney transplant.
