"The Poker4Life charity event is a terrific night of fun and excitement with a silent auction and plenty of poker action. All proceeds go to a very worthwhile cause. I had the privilege of participating last year and it really was a 'night to remember'. I'd recommend that if possible, you should play in the Poker4Life tournament - you'll be glad you did."
