One of Ohio’s LARGEST Charity Poker Tournaments
Sunday, August 25, 2013 at The Blackwell
on The Ohio State University campus!
This tournament is for ALL levels of players to enjoy a fun filled and competitive day of tournant style No-Limit Texas Hold-em to benefit one of the greatest causes a Buckeye or poker fan can support. Take a shot at winning your part of up to $18,000 in cash pay-out (dependent upon number of entries) at the inaugural Cards to Cure Cancer poker tournament. Each donational entry fee is 50% tax deductible (since the other 50% is paid out to top place finishers) and more importantly it is supporting the 2014 Buckeye Cruise for Cancer in the fight against cancer. The Buckeye Cruise for Cancer raises money directly for the Urban & Shelley Meyer Fund for Cancer Research and The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute. Thanks to all of our Sponsors, Donors, and Players, we have raised over $50,000 in the first two years!
