If you recall, our own Marsha Wolak-Atlas won the World series bracelet last summer. She is one Founders of the Diva Angels and continues to play in tournaments and plans to re-enter the 2012 World Series of Poker again this summer. As Diva Angels, we will encourage her and cheer as she moves through the various tables. Even if we can't be there watching the games as they unfold, Marsha will always be in our thoughts as she watches her cards.

Upon winning the last World Series of Poker, Marsha made a generous donation to the Diva Angels which in turns gets redistributed to the local chapters to support charity fundraising and 501c-3 charities of each chapter's selection. Below is an article that was written by the Herald Tribune about her poker achievements. Also, watch an exclusive interview of by clicking the image above.



Diva was selected to be a "breed dog" when she returned from Puppy raising. She needed a breeder family to stay with when she was not with "pups".  Our Diva Angel Debbie Stanley volunteered to add Diva to the family of labs she has and become the breeder host family.  Mandy and Layla, her sisters, have welcomed her into the family.
