Cards To Cure Cancer 2014

has partnered with Hollywood Casino for this year’s event.

It promises to be our best one yet!

First Prize is a 7-Day Cruise for 2 on the Oasis of the Seas with a seat at their $100,000 Royal Caribbean Tournament on board. 

Second Place through Fifth Place will each receive a seat at the 2014 Ohio Poker Championship in December plus the designated amount of the prize pool based on the number of players during the tournament.

OSU Players scheduled to appear:

Beanie Wells, Scoonie Penn, Matt Finkes Dustin Fox,

Branden Joe, Granville Waiters, Raymont Harris, Cie Grant,

JJ Sullinger, Michael Wiley, George Reese, Dimitrious Stanley

and Obie Stillwell!

AND, we just got word that Buckeye Alum, and long-time commentator for the World Poker Tour, Michael Sexton (and a member of the Poker Hall of Fame) will also take part in the event! 

 Registration starts soon!

All levels of players welcome, only a limited number of seats available!

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.  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 2015 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 $70,000 in the first three years!


Our 2014 Goal:

With your help, our goal for the 2014 Cards to Cure Cancer Tournament is to host over 200 players and raise $30,000 for the Cause!  The feedback from last years tournament has been absolutely amazing and we anticipate selling out this year.
