Gambling executive will represent Poker Players Alliance in a key state

The Poker Players Alliance, an organisation dedicated to the political protection of the rights of Americans to play poker online, named Dianna Donofrio as its Nevada State Director this week.

"The PPA is fortunate to have over one million dedicated members, and even more fortunate that Dianna is one of them," said former New York Senator Alfonse D'Amato, the Chairman of the PPA. "As Nevada's PPA State Director, Dianna will help strengthen the PPA's efforts both nationally and at the state level. We are proud to have her as part of the PPA team."

Donofrio was chosen to be the Nevada State Director of PPA operations from over 1 000 applicants who wanted to assume the position. She is eminently qualified for the position due to her 25 year career in the gaming industry. Starting with her work at the Bicycle Club in Los Angeles, Donofrio made her name as Special Projects Manager for what would become one of the preeminent tournament stops in America, the Legends of Poker.

After a stint as the Satellite Tournament Director at the Commerce Casino, Donofrio made the move to Las Vegas. She took over the same position at the Four Queens for the Four Queens Classic, which led her to work for over a decade in many of the casinos in the gambling mecca. Her crowning moment, though, was working her way through the ranks to a prominent position with the World Series of Poker.

She worked for Jack McClelland as Satellite Director when the WSOP was still held at Binion's. In 2005, she moved over to the Rio to manage satellites before changing positions the next year to become the Payout Manager. She left the WSOP, but has been organising and directing some of the best charity events around, including Jennifer Harman's tournament to benefit the SPCA and Montel Williams' MS Poker Gala in New York City, where she was Lead Tournament Coordinator.

As the Nevada State Director for the PPA, Donofrio will be responsible for the organisation's eyes and ears in Nevada, to alert the PPA on local news stories or legislation, as well as quickly mobilise her fellow local PPA members to attend poker-related events or rallies. She will also be tasked with recruiting individuals to join the PPA, contacting their elected officials, and serving as a spokesperson for local media. In the future, the PPA plans to help State Directors set up state PPA committees to strengthen the organisation's grassroots efforts.
