"We appreciate the 83 poker players, volunteers and the Highland Hotel staff for supporting this event," said Connie Oetken, Sunflower director of development. "As always, the proceeds will help people with developmental disabilities have access to a variety of adaptive equipment and services."

Sunflower, which is celebrating its 45th anniversary this year, serves infants, toddlers and adults with developmental disabilities in Barton, Pawnee, Rice, Rush and Stafford counties.
