The event will include a dinner, open bar, live auction and entertainment throughout the evening. The poker tournament of the evening will have a buy-in of $750 and will be a no-limit hold’em rebuy and add-on event. The tournament is set to begin in the evening hours, with 5,000 in starting chips provided to each player. Until the first break, late registration will be offered for those busy with other aspects of the evening.

Players can choose to rebuy if they drop below the 5,000 chip mark and will be provided 5,000 more for $300. The rebuy period will close at 9:45 pm and at that time, a one-time fee can be paid to add more chips to a player’s stack. $500 will give a player 10,000 in additional chips while $1,000 will offer 25,000 and $1,500 will provide 50,000 more chips.
