The fifth annual “Tyler’s Team” Charity Poker Classic will be held Sunday, March 29 at the Palm Beach Kennel Club.
The fundraiser will offer players a day of camaraderie, poker and fun while helping a worthy cause that keeps kids in youth sports. The event will offer all players a complimentary buffet and soft drinks from noon to 1 p.m., along with a 50/50 raffle, celebrity bounties with prizes and a silent auction.
The tournament will start at 1 p.m. and the winner will take home the “Tyler’s Cup” trophy, a 2015 WSOP event seat, a cash prize and a fifth-year one-ounce silver commemorative coin designed by Master Jeweler Vince Izzo and Miracle Jewelry Exchange.
Foundation staff will also be on location at the Palm Beach Kennel Club during March for a $50 pre-registration promotion.
The Tyler McLellan Foundation was started after the McLellans lost their 15-year-old son in an “Angel Flight” plane crash in Tampa on July 17, 2008. It is geared toward helping players in financially stressed families. For more info., call Kevin McLellan at (561) 215-3717 or visit www.tylermclellanfoundation.org.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Bru’s Buddies Community Legacy Program.
