Denver, CO (PRWEB) November 8, 2005
The Small Town Poker Tour (STPT) announced today they will be one of the participating sponsors of “Vince Neil’s Off The Strip Poker Tournament” benefiting the T. J. Martell Foundation.
“We are happy to be associated with such a good cause,” stated Mark Fracalossi executive producer of the STPT. “The STPT is all about giving back and this is a chance for everyone who has expressed interest in the tour to come out and play in this special event,” Fracalossi added.
The STPT will be giving all participating players a bonus. “Anyone who plays in this event will get to play in a STPT event free of charge.” Fracalossi added. “I encourage all to get on board and come to Vegas to support this cause.”
The event will be held November 11, 2005 at Peter Morton’s Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. Rocker Vince Neil of Mötley Crüe hosts the inaugural “Off the Strip” Texas Hold ‘Em Poker Tournament benefiting the T. J. Martell Foundation. Seats are limited to the first 150 entrants. There is a $40 entry fee and the buy-in is $500. Players will vie for a $50,000.00 prize pool. Payouts will go to the final table of ten. Following the tournament there will be an awards ceremony and a one-of-a-kind live auction, hosted by a very special emcee. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged. Contact The Joint Box Office at 702-693-5000.
“I’m very excited about the tournament,” stated Neil. “We have kicked this idea around for a while and it just makes sense, since I live in Las Vegas and The Joint is one of my favorite venues. Texas Hold ‘Em is a kick ass game and when you add the girls to the mix it only gets better. I hope my fans will come out and make this a very special night because it is a very special cause to me.”
Proceeds from the tournament and the auction will benefit the T. J. Martell Foundation, a music industry organization dedicated to the innovative life saving research into the treatment of leukemia, cancer and AIDS.
The Small Town Poker Tour is a national series of charity poker tournaments that will be filmed for television. The goals of the Tour are to find America’s number one amateur poker player and raise money for charities.
