Vince Neil's Off the Strip charity tournament

Las Vegas Strip

Vince Neil's Off the Strip Poker Tournament will return to Las Vegas in November to raise money for the charity.

Celebrities poker pros and Las Vegas's hottest dancers will be there for the No-Limit Texas Hold'em tournament, with proceeds benefiting The Skylar Neil Memorial Fund and the T.J. Martell Foundation.

The Skylar Neil Memorial Fund was founded by Neil, lead singer of Motley Crue, in honor of his daughter after she died of cancer in 1995. The organization's goal is to raise awareness of and much-needed funding for various children's illnesses.

The Skyler Neil Memorial has donated more than $2 million to the T.J. Martell Foundation.

The T.J. Martell Foundation is an organization dedicated to raising funds for innovative initial and ongoing research into treatment and cures for leukemia, cancer and AIDS. The foundation is headquartered in New York and includes The Bogart Pediatric Cancer Research Program in Los Angles, the Nashville Division and the Midwest Division in Detroit.

The T.J. Martell Foundation has raised more than $235 million to help support and fund research.

Now poker players and poker fans have an opportunity to help add to that number at the Vince Neil charity event taking place at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas Nov. 3.

Seating for the tournament is limited to the first 150 entrants, and the tournament has a $500+$50 buy-in. Re-buys and an add-on will be offered during play, and players will vie for a prize pool of at least $50,000, with payouts to the top 10 players.

Even if you miss out on joining in the game, you can still help out the fundraising event by checking out the silent auction in The Joint. There will be a collection of unique memorabilia from the worlds of music, sports and entertainment up for grabs.

Vince Neil, and some adult superstars, will also host a live charity auction at 3 p.m. that day, with the tournament starting at 4 p.m.
