The Nerds Vs. The Poker Chips - Charity Poker Tournament!

Join us for an afternoon of poker playing for a good cause!

This Texas Hold 'Em Poker Tournament will have an entry fee of $30 per player. Half of the fee will go to Main Line Animal Rescue, a local no-kill shelter. The other half will go towards prizes, which will be given to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in the tournament.

1st Place is 1/2 of the prize pool

2nd Place is 1/3 of the prize pool

3rd place is 1/6 of the prize pool.

So, for example, say we have 30 players (I'd like more). At $30 per player that's $900. $450 to benefit doggies and kitties. First place prize would be $225. Second place would be $150. Third place $75.

Don't play poker but still want to help? Come on down and cheer on the players... and we'll also have a 50/50 raffle that costs $1 per ticket / 6 for $5 / 14 for $10... half the collected monies go to the winner, the other half to our cause.

You will also be able to donate money directly if you prefer.

Twenty9 Restaurant has graciously agreed to provide space for this charity event. Please patronize them... drinks and food will be available for purchase.

I hope to see many of you there! And some attendees may walk away with some nice cash prizes... but no matter what, the puppies and kitties win too!

    I had a great time, and I'm glad I could help raise money to rescue animals. I hope to do this again sometime! :)

    Thanks to everyone who came and supported the cause! We raised $319.00 for Main Line Animal Rescue!

    The top three poker winners were:
    1st: Mike
    2nd: Jose
    3rd: Vladimir

    We may do another one of these, maybe in a few months.

    Thanks again to everyone!
