(LAS VEGAS, NV) -- The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas will host Vince Neil's 4th Annual Off the Strip Poker Tournament inside the Poker Lounge on Saturday, January 17, 2009. Celebrities, Poker Pros and the adult industry's hottest stars will join Neil for a wildly entertaining No-Limit Texas Hold ‘Em Poker Tournament, benefiting the Skylar Neil Memorial Fund, an organization which has raised millions to support innovative cancer, leukemia, and AIDS research.
Seating for the tournament is limited to the first 150 entrants. The tournament buy-in is $500, plus a $50 registration fee. Re-buys and an add-on will be offered during play. Players will vie for a guaranteed cash prize pool of $50,000, and payouts will be made to the final table of ten.
Participants and members of the public are invited to visit Hard Rock Hotel & Casino’s new ‘Poker Lounge’ throughout the day to bid on an amazing collection of unique memorabilia from the worlds of music, sports and entertainment, up for silent auction. Beginning at 3:00pm, Vince will join adult film superstars, Poker greats and Hollywood celebrities for our cocktail welcome reception. Tournament play will then commence at 4:00pm.
Following the tournament, go 'back stage' with Vince and others at the VIP After Party in Hard Rock Hotel & Casino's Wasted Space. Bid on one of a kind items at the live auction including some of Vince's personal gear and memorabilia. Access to the VIP After Party requires a donation to the Skylar Neil Foundation of $100.00 (for non-tournament players) and space is limited.
All proceeds from the poker tournament and charity auctions will benefit the Skylar Neil Foundation, established in 1995 by Vince to honor his daughter Skylar who passed away from cancer.
