Please join us so that we can organize for better poker laws in Colorado and nationally.

www.pokerplayersalliance.org

Consider this: the only way to get better laws is to show the pols that we are going to vote the issue. While organizing poker players is like herding cats, we have the same interest in a fair game, both online and locally.

We are also having a meeting August 3 to organize some volunteers for a charity poker game that the national PPA is holding during the DNC on August 26. PM me for details.

Tourney will Benefit the Paralyzed Veterans of America

The Poker Players Alliance will hold a poker tournament to benefit the Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA) at Coors Field in Denver, Colorado, during the Democratic National Convention.

Poker at the Ballpark will take place the night of Tuesday, Aug. 26, on the club level of Coors Field, and all proceeds will go directly to the PVA. The winner of this event gets a seat into the main event of the 2009 World Series of Poker.

“PPA is honored to host this charity poker tournament and looks forward to raising a lot of money for these American heroes,” said Alfonse D’Amato, chairman of the PPA and former Democratic senator from New York. “This is a great opportunity to harness the popularity of the game in order to raise much-needed funds for those who have fought to protect our country and our individual freedoms — paralyzed vets.”

Individual players can register for $500, and two sponsorship opportunities are available:

Full House sponsorship — This sponsorship costs $3,500 and gives the buyer four entries, two specetator seats during the tourney, one ticket to the VIP reception, admission to the general reception, and recognition on all event materials and signage.
Royal Flush sponsorship — This sponsorship costs $7,500 and gives the buyer eight entries, four spectator tickets, two tickets to the VIP reception, and recognition on all event materials and signage.
Ben Affleck has confirmed, as well as Andy Bloch and Barry Greenstein. The reception begins at 9:30 p.m., and the tourney at 10 p.m. The Democratic National Convention takes place in Denver Aug. 25-28.

For more information about the tourney, and to register, visit www.theheraldgroup.com/ppa.

Also, for those in Colorado that would like to help as volunteers, you can PM me for details. We are having some satellites for seats, as well.
