Charity Event For The V Foundation This Wednesday
March 22, 2022
The Grand Resort and Casino in Reno, Nevada, will be hosting a special charity poker tournament this Wednesday, March 24th, to benefit the V Foundation and it’s ongoing efforts to fight against cancer, and quite a few familiar names are hoping regular folks will join them when they attend.

This special $230 buy-in (w/$100 rebuys) event, currently is expecting numerous top players and celebrities including Antonio Esfandiari, Liv Boeree, Jose Canseco and Mekhi Phifer, and is just one part of an exciting overall gathering that also features an impressive private dinner the next day prepared by top chefs, with complimentary wine from Gemstone Vineyard, as well as a special silent auction with many significant donated prizes.

All proceeds from these events will go towards ESPN’s The V Foundation, an organization that over the past 17 year’s since its inception has raised over $90 million towards cancer research and related programs.  The V Foundation was the brain child of coach and sportscaster Jim Valvano- who gave his life to the disease in 1993- and is known to award 100% of all direct donations and net proceeds of events like this, directly to its causes.
