E.J. Whitten Foundation Charity Poker Tournament – This Thursday!

Posted at 17:37 2010-06-16

This Thursday evening, June 17th, get yourself down to the Crown Poker Room as Team PokerStars Pro Tony Hachem will be hosting the first E.J. Whitten Foundation Charity Poker Tournament. It will be a $300 buy-in with $100 rebuys with great prizes up for grabs including a 2011 Aussie Millions Main Event seat.

The E.J. Whitten Foundation is dedicated to supporting Prostate Cancer Research and Awareness, and Hachem said this event gives everyone the opportunity to help in every step of the way, from research and prevention to diagnosis and treatment.

“Our help can change the lives of those affected by prostate cancer and help them find information, support and hope when they need it most,” Hachem, an ambassador of the charity, said.

The night will boast a football flavour and include the glamour of a red carpet with celebrity guests and AFL players as well as fundraising activities and live entertainment starring Mike Brady, with crosses to the Nine Network’s AFL Footy Show. A celebrity player will be seated at each of the tables.
