Justin Young and a group of professional players are coming together to play a charity poker tournament to benefit the Homestead at Boulder City today.

Run by the Volunteers of America, the Homestead at Boulder City is a top-rated assisted living facility but over the last two weeks the facility has lost 18 elderly residents.

"Being a volunteer at the Homestead is incredibly rewarding," said activities director Deborah Patterson, "But these people and their families become one's own. It's been a difficult time for all of us. We're in need of emergency funding and support."

The first annual "Forget Me Not" charity poker tournament is open to the public and there will be numerous poker celebrities playing including Young, Jon Friedberg.

The event will take place at the M Resort Spa and Casino and will be presented by Rockwell Watches. The cost to enter the tournament is $200+$20 with $30 unlimited rebuys in the first three levels.

Fifty percent of the proceeds will benefit the Homestead at Boulder City while the other half of the prize money will be awarded to players making the final table. The winner will receive first place prize money and a Rockwell Time sports watch.
