(Houston, TX) -- Houston's YES Prep Public Schools will soon receive a record-breaking donation, thanks to a successful fundraiser.

The bulk of the money was given through event sponsorships, while the poker tournament itself brought in about 590-thousand dollars.

Mickey Barrett, a retired senior partner at the Vitol energy company, was crowned tournament champion.
