The sixth annual Tyler’s Team Charity Poker Classic will take place Sunday, March 20 at the Palm Beach Kennel Club.
The Texas Hold ’Em fundraiser will offer players a great day of camaraderie and some good poker and fun while helping a worthy cause that helps to keep kids in youth sports. The event will offer all players a complimentary buffet and soft drinks from noon to 3 p.m., along with a 50/50 raffle, celebrity bounties and a silent auction. Buy in is $50 with $20 re-buys and $10 add-ons.
The tournament will start at 1 p.m. sharp with prizes, and pay the top 10 percent of the field. The first-place winner will receive the Tyler’s Cup Trophy, a cash prize and a $580 buy-in at the World Series of Poker Event in 2016. Tyler McLellan Foundation staff will be on location at the Palm Beach Kennel Club during the month of March for a $40 tournament pre-registration promotion.

“Every year, this event has grown, and we want to do something to make this event bigger and better,” Kevin McLellan said. “This year, as in past, we are having the ultimate 50/50 raffle that we started in 2014. It will be drawn the day of the event. The best part of this raffle is you don’t have to be present to win, and we are posting the pot total on our web site.”
Tickets are $5 each and six for $20. They can be purchased online at www.tylermclellanfoundation.org or at the Palm Beach Kennel Club. For more info., call Kevin McLellan at (561) 215-3717.
