U.S. Poker Series today announced that it will be hosting a charity Travelin’ Texas Hold’em Tournament to benefit the Anderson Animal Shelter in Elgin, Illinois on Saturday, March 11, 2006.

By combining the Travelin’ Texas Hold’em Tournament from U.S. Poker Series with the Prairie Rock Brewing Company venue, we are able to offer attendees an engaging event that benefits a great cause," said Kathy Melone, the event director.

The donation for this charity tournament is $125, which includes hors d’oeuvres and a seat in the tournament. Spectator tickets are available for $30.
