[Content Disclosure: 75% Poker; 25% Cats]
For the poker purists in the audience..... there will be very little poker in today's post. To cut to the "poker only content" read my article on PokerNews and/or my post on PokerBlog on this topic.
Today I am going to talk about a great charity event coming this Friday here in Las Vegas and a great cause the Nevada Society for the Prevention of the Cruelty to Animals No-Kill Sanctuary.
The event is the Jennifer Harman Celebrity Poker Tournament and Charity Auction to be held this Friday, April 20th at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas. Lots of poker, lots of professional players, many celebrities from Hollywood and Las Vegas. All of the buy-ins go to the SPCA and there is even a $10,000 WSOP Main Event seat for the winner.
Promises of many surprise appearances and some fairly outrageous personal donations for the auction should make for a fun day for everyone.
There are seats available for the tournament; you are bound to be seated at a table with, at least, four or five professionals and celebrity players. But enough about poker.
The SPCA Sanctuary is just a great place. I hung out in the "Cat Wing" for an hour after a press conference earlier this week and then filled out my volunteer papers before I left. My living situation here in the desert does not allow for feline companions, so now I can get my kitten fix by hanging out with 150 cats on a regular basis. The volunteers at the SPCA Sanctuary are a great bunch and I look forward to getting to know them all too, just as soon as I get those cats off of me, which will be in a week or so.
If you can't make it out to the event this Friday, please consider a donation directly to the SPCA No-Kill Sanctuary. Remember on a cold winter night, nothing is better for a chills than throwing another cat on the bed.
Donate to Nevada SPCA
