All Estates chips in for charity
That's why All Estates has become a sponsor of the Wish Upon A Star Foundation's "Chips for Kids" poker tournament charity being held Sunday, July 18.
For more than 26 years, Wish Upon A Star has granted the wishes of more than 1,800 children who are dealing with high-risk or terminal health conditions in California. The non-profit foundation was founded by law enforcement agencies as an effort to bring a little happiness into the lives of youngsters.
The Texas Hold'em poker tournament will raise money to help grant wishes.
"This is really a great charity to support and the tournament will be a fun way to raise money and awareness for Wish Upon A Star," said All Estates General Manager Robert Lee. "Besides just matching wits with your fellow players for a good cause, there will be great prizes."
Gift cards in the amount of $500, $300, and $100 will be awarded to the first, second, and third place finishers. In addition, $50 gift cards will be given to to any player who knocks out one of three bounty players.
There is a $25 buy-in for 2,000 chips, $20 re-buy for 1,500 chips and $30 add-on for 3,000 chips. For a $100 donation, players can get 9,000 chips.
The event will be held at Crawdaddy's Restaurant, 333 East Main St. in downtown Visalia.
