Print-icon
 

The Charity Series of Poker is headed back to Las Vegas for another charity event on Nov. 12 to benefit Families for Effective Autism Treatment Inc. (FEAT), which is a non-profit organization of parents and professionals established in 1994 and designed to help families with children who have received the diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), including Autism, Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD), or Asperger’s Syndrome.

The Chip In For Autism charity poker tournament has a buy-in of $300, and it begins at 5:00 p.m. at the Illuminarium. Players begin with 10,000 in starting chips, and 20,000 add-ons are available for purchase as well. The top prize in the tournament will be $5,000, and there are also many final table, bounty, and silent auction prizes available.

A cocktail hour with appetizers, an open bar, and a silent auction will take place before the tournament, and doors open at 3:30 p.m. for that portion of the event. Anyone is welcome to attend the cocktail hour and silent auction for $100 without participating in the tournament. Attire for all of the evening’s events is business casual.

Established in 2014, the Charity Series of Poker is a nonprofit company founded to organize and promote charity poker tournaments and other events that raise money and awareness for worthy charities and causes. Poker professional Matt Stout is the founder and president of the CSOP.

This upcoming event in November will be the 55th stop of the series after a busy lineup of tournaments that has run from late summer into fall this year in Las Vegas. The CSOP will also be hosting Poker Knight to benefit the Vegas Golden Knights Alumni Association on Oct. 13. The charity poker tournament on that night has a buy-in of $400, and it takes place inside View Nightclub at Palms.

Regarding this coming event, the CSOP website offered the following additional info:

In the beginning, FEAT ignited change. Children were not properly diagnosed prior to the age of 6, they received minimal services not geared to the needs of children with autism and intensive intervention was not an option in Southern Nevada. Today FEAT’s principles of helping all children in Southern Nevada are still very much alive. Early diagnosis and appropriate services are now possible. Support and empowerment exist with the help of FEAT, come out and help them in that goal by joining the fun at CSOP Chip In For Autism.
