Caesars Hosts NASCAR Jeff Gordon Foundation Poker Classic
Poker Professionals, NASCAR Drivers and Celebrities Play Poker for Charity
And professional bull-riders:
The Jeff Gordon Foundation and Harrah's have teamed together to help families in need. Fans can support the Jeff Gordon Foundation by calling the Caesars Palace Poker Room at 702-785-6566.
Michael Matts, Caesars poker room manager, will emcee the event. His sparkling personality and diplomatic nature is the perfect suit for the celebrity poker program, which he'll conduct in a "shoot-out" tournament format. The winner from each table will advance to the final table.
The buy-in is $1,000 and each player will have the opportunity to face some of their favorite stars, with a chance to win the purse and a seat in the 2006 World Series of Poker, worth $10,000. Spectators are encouraged to come out to witness the affair and cheer on their favorite poker player.
Red carpet arrivals will begin at 10 a.m. PST on March 8th at Caesars Poker Room.
The cards will be in the air by 11:30 a.m. PST.
