Shuffle Up For Poker Gives Charity Event
June 3, 2022

Poker Gives, the non-profit charity organization founded by industry legends Linda Johnson, Mike Sexton, Lisa Tenner and Jan Fisher, is hosting it's first annual Shuffle Up For Poker Gives Charity Poker Tournament tomorrow (6/4) at 7 p.m., at the Golden Nugget Casino in Las Vegas, and apparently we're all welcome to attend.

This very special $230 buy-in, plus $50 rebuy, No Limit Hold 'em tournament will benefit all three of Poker Gives' key charities, the Special Olympics, Paralyzed Veterans of America and the Intrepid Fallen Heros Fund.  Fifty percent of the generated prize pool will go to these worthy charities with the other fifty going towards the players who cash in the event.  Along with the top cash prize, the winner of the event will also receive a free entry into the 2010 World Poker Tour Celebrity Invitational.

All players who compete in the Shuffle Up For Poker Gives charity poker tournament will also have the opportunity to attend this Friday's Women In Poker Hall Of Fame (WiPHOF) Induction Ceremony hosted by Mike Sexton.  This year's inductees include Cyndy Violette, June Field and Jan Fisher- who apparently is in for quite the busy week.

For more information on Poker Gives visit www.pokergives.org, where you can not only find further details on their key charities but also information on tomorrow's important tournament, as well as Friday's Women In Poker Hall Of Fame Ceremony.
