Charity Poker Tournament and Auction Set

A big night is planned for Sunday, October 12 for the Shane Sellers All-Star Jockeys’ No-Limit Texas Hold ‘Em Poker Tournament and Charity Fundraiser, which will be held at the Red Mile Clubhouse, Lexington, Kentucky. It promises to be an incredibly fun night of dinner, entertainment, poker tournament, dancing, and live and silent auctions, all to benefit the Simunye Project of South Africa and Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund. The cost for poker players is $250 buy-in and the cost for non-players is $65.

Poker players are urged to register early to guarantee their seat. There will be limited capacity for non-poker players. The estimated payouts for a full field of players will be $10,000 for first, $3,500 for second, $2,000 for third, $1,000 for fourth, $500 for fifth and $250 for sixth through tenth.

There will be many wonderful items offered in both the live and silent auctions. Among the offerings will be a six-seat box and parking pass for the 2015 World’s Championship Horse Show. Everyone knows how hard it is to get lower level seats at Louisville and here’s the perfect opportunity to acquire seats and support a great cause. Some of the other great items include George Strait’s signed guitar and cowboy hat, a trip for two to South Africa and California Chrome’s halter and saddle pad from the 2014 Kentucky Derby.

Registration for the poker game begins at 5:00 p.m., the buffet dinner is from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. and poker starts at 7:00. For more information contact Bridget Parker at (859) 873-4394 or go to the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund website.
