The Small Town Poker Tour (STPT) will be one of the sponsors of Vince Neil's Off The Strip Poker Tournament, it announced yesterday, and as a bonus will be awarding all competitors with a free seat in a STPT event.
The charity Texas Hold'em tournament will take place on November 11 at The Joint inside Peter Morton's Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas to benefit the T.J. Martell Foundation. Legendary rocker Vince Neil of Motley Crue will be hosting the event together with a collection of dancers from some of Vegas' hottest night clubs.
Players can buy-in for $500 + $40 to compete for the estimated $50,000 prize pool. Payouts will be awarded to the 10 final table finishers. Attendance is limited to 150 entrants. An awards ceremony will be held immediately following the tournament along with an auction. Guest passes will be made available to interested buyers not competing in the tournament.
All proceeds will be donated to the T.J. Martell Foundation via the Skylar Neil Foundation, which was established by Neil following the death of his daughter from stomach cancer. Since setting up his organization in 1995, Neil has helped raise over $1 million for the T.J. Martell Foundation, a non-profit music industry organization funding research into the treatment of leukemia, cancer and AIDS.
