The third annual Jennifer Harman Charity Poker Tournament benefiting the Nevada Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) no-kill animal shelter and sanctuary will be held at The Venetian Poker Room on Friday, April 17, in Las Vegas.
The highly anticipated event raised more than $130,00 last year and awarded the winning participant a seat in the World Series of Poker. Prizes this year also give the winner a seat at the WSOP, and each player will receive a generous gift bag courtesy of the Nevada SPCA and its sponsors. Silent auction items will feature autographed sports and poker memorabilia.
Poker celebrities who have participated in the past include: Doyle Brunson, Phil Ivey, Johnny Chan, Howard Lederer, Phil Hellmuth, Jamie Gold, Hoyt Corkins, Amarillo “Slim” Preston, Freddy Deeb, Evelyn Ng, Antonio Esfandiari, Joe Hachem, Barry Greenstein, Layne “Back to Back” Flack, Chau Giang, Chris Ferguson, David Chesnoff, David Williams, Huckleberry Seed, Jennifer Leigh, Scotty Nguyen, Dan Fleishman, Men Nguyen and many others.
“I can’t thank The Venetian and my friends enough for the flood of support they’ve shown the Nevada SPCA,” said Harman at last year’s event. “These animals give unconditional love. This is a chance for all of us to give something back.”
The red carpet walk begins at 4 p.m. The poker tournament starts at 5 p.m. and is open to the public. Registration opens on Thursday, April 16 at 12 p.m. Registration will close at 6 p.m. on Friday, April 17.
