Miami, FL (PRWEB) January 8, 2009
UltimateBet today announced that it is once again taking its game offline in support of making the world a better place. The online poker site today announced the sponsorship of the Merage Jewish Community Center's Fifth Annual No Limit Texas Hold'em tournament. The charity poker tournament gets underway on Sunday, January 11 at 3pm PT at the Merage JCC in Irvine, California. All proceeds collected will benefit Merage JCC Scholarships and Children's Programs.
The buy-in for the charity Texas Hold'em tournament is $200 with multiple re-buys available until the first break. In addition to a mix of prizes on the line that includes vacations, sports tickets, home electronics and others, all 10 players at the final table will be awarded with a package of UltimateBet.net swag that includes t-shirts and caps.
The winner of the tournament will receive a much sought-after UB hockey jersey, similar to the one sported by Phil Hellmuth when he won his record-shattering 11th bracelet at the World Series of Poker.
What's more, the top three finishers in the Texas Hold'em tournament will each secure a seat in an online poker tournament featuring a $200,000 guaranteed prize pool.
UltimateBet.net has a strong history of reaching out to the community and supporting worthy organizations. UltimateBet.net is a longtime supporter of Ante Up For Africa, an organization created to raise public awareness and funds for the humanitarian crisis in Darfur.
The online poker site has also supported several other charity tournaments including the TASER Foundation for Fallen Officers, an organization dedicated to providing financial support to the families of local, state/provincial, and federal law enforcement officials in the US and Canada who were lost in the line of duty. Eva's Heroes, a foundation dedicated to enriching the lives of those with developmental challenges and helping children and young adults with special needs to integrate and flourish in society, has also benefited from UltimateBet.net sponsorship.
