Jennifer Harman has long been known for her knowledge in the game of poker but she is also known for her love of animals. Harmon will be hosting a special charity poker tournament next weekend to benefit the Nevada Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (NSPCA). The event will see many poker pros as well as regular Joes play in the tournament to help raise money for the cause.
This will be the third annual Jennifer Harman Charity Poker Tournament and it is sure to be a success. The two past events rose over $500,000 for the NSPCA. The event will begin with a red carpet walk. Players will strut their stuff down the red carpet while accompanied by animals from the NSPCA shelter. This will begin at 4pm.
The poker tournament will kick off at 5pm as a $330 no limit holdÃ¢â‚¬â„¢em tournament with $100 rebuys for the first three levels of play. There will also be a onetime add on costing $100 which will give players twice the starting chip stack.
The winner of the tournament will walk away with a seat to the World Series of Poker Main Event as well as a watch from Curtis & Co. All players who reach the final table will earn a nice prize from one of the tournaments sponsors.
Silent and live auctions will take place as well to raise money for the charity. The auctions will feature sports memorabilia as well as autographed poker items.
Harmon commented on how much help is needed this year at the NSPCA. With the state of the economy as rough as it is many pet owners are finding it more difficult to care for their animals and they must turn them over to the NSPCA. Harman stated: “This year has been especially challenging. So many animals were abandoned by people that lost their homes due to the economy. The NSPCA saved many lives, but so many others were locked away and discovered too late. It’s been a trying time for all of us, and the funds are running low. I’m pleading with everyone to help us in our efforts to raise awareness and funds during this event. I know it’s a lot to ask, but every little bit matters. Come to the Venetian on April 17th, meet the celebrities and their animal companions, and give what you can.”
