The third-annual “Poker for Hope” tournament takes place this Saturday night at Bally’s Las Vegas.  Action gets underway at 6 pm.

Founded in honor of Tia Palermo, who battled non-Hodgkins lymphoma for 11 years and and passed away in 2012 at age 48, all funds raised will go to the Tia’s Hope charity, which helps patients and their families stricken with this disease in education, emotional support, and direct financial assistance.  Read more about Tia and the foundation created in her name here:  TIA’S HOPE

Several notable poker pros will attend, along with special guest, actor Mark Wahlberg.  Show tickets and other prizes will be given away.

Poker players and fans have proven to be immensely generous over the years and have created a number of worthy charities designed to help others who are less fortunate.  I’m proud to assist Tia’s Hope and urge the Las Vegas community to join me.

Hope to see you at Bally’s this Saturday night.


Special thanks to Kate Moulene and Lisa Tenner — as well as Jess Ravich and his four daugthers Zoe, Rae, Ede and Ava — for their work on behalf of setting up this charity event.
