It’s time to ante up the stakes on childhood drowning prevention during Live Like Jake’s third annual “Poker 4 Prevention” Charity Tournament.
Tickets are on sale now for the Texas Hold ‘Em showdown, which will be held at the Palm Beach Kennel Club on Sunday, Sept. 12, starting at noon. Tickets are $50 per person and cover the initial buy-in. Re-buys are $20 each. The prize pool is 50 percent of the buy-ins and re-buys, with awards going to the top 10 percent of the final players.
“While last year’s event was virtual, we had more than 50 players participating, and it was a huge success,” said Keri Morrison, organization founder and mother of Jake Roarke Morrison, who was lost in a tragic drowning incident. “We are so grateful to be able to hold our event once more in the wonderful poker rooms at the Palm Beach Kennel Club, where we can welcome even more players. This event helps us raise funds to support drowning prevention and to create awareness of the importance of safety measures that should be in place in and around water. And we do it all while we have a great time together.”
Participants and spectators can also join in the 50/50 raffle, as well as the Live Like Jake prize raffle. Food and drink are available at the Palm Beach Kennel Club’s Paddock Restaurant and snack bar. Space is limited and tickets may be purchased by visiting https://bit.ly/LLJPoker.
The event will take place in the Palm Beach Kennel Club’s second floor poker room. The Kennel Club is located at 1111 N. Congress Ave. in West Palm Beach.
