Maximum Hope Foundation logoThe eighth Charity Series of Poker event is set to run on August 12th and we expect another great time back at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, FL.

This year’s event will once again run the night before the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Championship weekend and will benefit Maximum Hope Foundation, a non-profit organization created by three-time Emmy-winning actor Brad Garrett that offers practical aid to families with a child battling a life-limiting illness.

Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino will be hosting a players party at the L Bar at 5pm with hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, live music, and drawings for prizes worth more than $30,000. After the party, players will head to the ballroom for a fun time while raising money for the foundation.

There will be a $1,000 cash bonus to the player who re-enters the most times before registration closes around 9:15pm and the chip leader at that time will also receive a $1,000 cash prize.

We expect to see a lot of our friends in the tournament including big-name pros, poker fans, and plenty of stars from outside poker. We hope you can make it out and help us push the donations higher throughout the evening.
