National Poker Month by - September 2010

by Poker Team

Poker Gives is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity organization founded by poker industry leaders Mike Sexton, Linda Johnson, Jan Fisher, and Lisa Tenner as a way for the poker world to “give back” to worthwhile charity organizations. The goal is to raise funds through poker events and distribute the funds to four mainstream charities: Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, Paralyzed Veterans of America, Special Olympics Nevada, and Step by Step Foundation. Donations are tax-deductible. More information about Poker Gives can be found at

Poker Gives is currently working on a huge fundraising project called National Poker Month that will take place in September 2010. More than 20 poker cardrooms in the United States have agreed to host fundraising tournaments to benefit Poker Gives during September. Half of the proceeds from these events will go to Poker Gives and half will go into the prize pool. A list of cardrooms participating in National Poker Month can be found at

In addition to winning cash, the names of all winners and all participating cardrooms and cardroom managers will be entered into separate drawings to be held on October 4, 2010. Bonus prizes that event winners will be eligible to receive include seats to the World Poker Tour Invitational, a WPT Boot Camp session, a poker cruise to Mexico with Card Player Cruises, and poker lessons with Mike Sexton and Linda Johnson.
