St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® will host its fifth annual “St. Jude Against All Odds” charity poker tournament, presented by The Revolution FMO, LLC and The Freedom Dream Team, Saturday, March 2, at the Red Rock Casino Resort & Spa in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Tickets will go on sale November 12, including registration for the limited seat poker tournament. The evening, hosted by Luis “Weezy” Egurrola, will feature a red carpet welcome, cocktails, dinner, both silent and live auctions, as well as poker and philanthropy. The event raises awareness and funding for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, which is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
St. Jude Against All Odds founder and co-chair is six-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner, Daniel Negreanu. Event sponsors include Charity Series of Poker, Shift4 Corporation, Poker Central and The Revolution FMO, LLC.
“The research done at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is shared around the world,” said event co-chair Daniel Negreanu, six-time WSOP Champion. “Every hospital in every community benefits and needs our support. It brings me great satisfaction to know that the poker community is coming together to help St. Jude focus on what matters most – saving children’s lives.”
Tournament buy-in, including dinner, is priced at $500 per person and tickets to cocktails and dinner are priced at $300 per person. Players in the poker tournament will be competing to secure a $10,000 seat to the 2019 WSOP Main Event, as well four center-ice tickets to a Golden Knights game with Daniel Negreanu, or a luxury leather bag from MontBlanc.
Thanks to fundraising and awareness events like this one, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
