Charity Tournament Offers WPT Seat Prize

16 August 2006

LOS ANGELES, California – (PRESS RELEASE) -- Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters of Los Angeles (JBBBSLA), a premier non-profit mentoring agency in Southern California, serving over 1,800 children annually, is set to host "A Full House" for their 3rd Annual Poker Tournament on September 7, 2006 at The Hollywood Park Casino. This year's event will include dinner and lessons from 6:30pm to 7:30pm, followed by a No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament, where players will have an opportunity to "ante up" for a chance to win $5,000 cash, or a $10,000 buy-in at the World Poker Tour.

"The poker tournament is an opportunity to give back to the mentors, board members and friends of the agency that are supportive of our programs throughout the year," said Margy Feldman, JBBBSLA CEO. "While this is a fun way to raise money for the underprivileged children we serve, it is also a great opportunity for the players to network and make friends with a diverse group of like-minded Los Angelenos. With this year's exciting grand prize, players just may have a chance to talk cards with a future poker champion!"

Participants can "buy in" for $200 with a chance to increase their winnings 50-fold, by winning the first place prize of a $10,000 buy-in at the World Poker Tour(R) or $5,000 cash. The top ten finishers will also receive cash prizes, including the chance to win a car in the "royal flush giveaway." For more information or registration, call Rebecca Rauh at (323) 761-8675.
