Westime, the multi-brand watch retailer based in Los Angeles, has raised an impressive $1,002,850 for disadvantaged youth in its third-annual Westime Charity Poker Tournament.
The tournament was held at the home of former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and was hosted by Schwarzenegger and Westime founder and CEO John Simonian.
The funds will go to the After-School All-Stars (ASAS), an organization that provides after-school programs for underserved youth.
“Through this one event, we ensured that our kids will have a safe place to go every single day when the bell rings at 3 p.m. Instead of ending up on the street, these kids have world-class programs where they learn to be successful in school and in life,” said ASAS CEO Ben Paul.
