On Saturday, May 21st, Peppermill Resort Casino will host the fifth annual Jennifer Harman Celebrity Poker Tournament (JHCPT) benefiting the Nevada Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Nevada SPCA) No-Kill Shelter.

The JHCPT will take place in conjunction with the Nevada State Poker Championship, and will be included in Heartland Poker Tour’s (HPT) fall line-up of televised programming available in over 100 million homes across America.

All proceeds will benefit the Nevada SPCA.

Past JHCPT contributions have allowed the sanctuary to extend its community outreach program, build awareness around the no-kill movement, and expand its facility with the official unveiling of the “Jennifer Harman Wing” in 2008.

“The best thing about having a pet is experiencing their unconditional love,” says Harman. “The Nevada SPCA ensures these once abandoned and abused animals are cared for, adopted, or live humanely in its no-kill shelter for the rest of their lives. Everyone who participates is actually saving a life, and that means so much to me.”

Celebrities and poker professionals scheduled to throw-down for the animals include: Howard Lederer, Andy Bloch, Marco Traniello, Mike “The Mouth” Matusow, Daniel Negreanu, HGTV’s Kahi Lee, Barry Greenstein, Scotty Nguyen, ESPN’s Lon McEachern, Annie Duke, Carrot Top, Two-Time US Olympian Ross Powers, Olympic Snowboarder Louie Vito, Antonio Esfandiari, “Saved By The Bell’s” Dennis Haskins and many, many more.
