Bernard Lee Doing Charitable Deeds in the Boston Area

Bernard Lee is one of the most active players in the poker community, and when he is not competing on the tournament circuit he is busy writing articles or hosting his own program on Rounders Radio called the Bernard Lee Poker Show.

In his spare time, the pro also spends much of his time carrying out charitable works, and has even set up the Lee’s Full House Charity Program, which aims to help families in need in the Boston area. Each Christmas, Lee and his family then spend time visiting homeless families at the Perkins Community Center in Dorchester, who are provided with shelter by FamilyAid, and attempts to brightens up their holiday period by handing out personalized gifts, as well as holiday packages.

Now into its seventh year, Lee’s Full House Charity Program has become somewhat of a family tradition for Lee, his wife and children. Explaining the joy helping others brings over the Christmas period, Lee highlights the heightened stress homeless families experience over the holiday as parents try to balance fulfilling their children’s wishes with paying their bills.

Bernard and his family therefore help provide parents and their children items that they wish or need around this time of year, whilst also giving them “joy and peace of mind.” Elaborating further, Lee explains:

“Our goal has always been to bring joy to New England families during the holiday season. More than anything, I love seeing the children smile when they receive the specific gifts they wished for. My family and I always look forward to this event.”

In terms of his poker career, Bernard Lee first made a splash in the poker world after finishing the 2005 WSOP Main Event in 13th place for $400,000. That still represents his biggest score to date, and since then Lee has gone on to amass $2,329,567 in live earnings, with his winnings this year coming to $132,640.
