U.S. Poker Series Hosts Charity Tournament - Friday 27th of January 2006

ILLINOIS – U.S. Poker Series today announced that it will be hosting a charity Travelin' Texas Hold'em Tournament to benefit the Anderson Animal Shelter in Elgin, Illinois on Saturday, March 11, 2006. The benefit tournament will be held at the Prairie Rock Brewing Company in Elgin with participation limited to the first 200 registered players. The event kicks-off with a reception at 6:30 p.m., and the tournament starting at 7:05 p.m. Spectator tickets for non-playing attendees are also being offered.

Proceeds from this event will benefit Anderson Animal Shelter – a shelter providing temporary housing for approximately 3,400 homeless or abandoned companion animals annually. Anderson Animal Shelter is passionately committed not only to providing shelter to animals that are in need, but also to eliminating the euthanasia of healthy, adoptable animals, and doing everything in their power to help curb pet overpopulation through their spay/neuter efforts.

"We're excited to be offering an upscale, entertaining event as part of our 2006 fundraising efforts. By combining the Travelin' Texas Hold'em Tournament from U.S. Poker Series with the Prairie Rock Brewing Company venue, we are able to offer attendees an engaging event that benefits a great cause," said Kathy Melone, the event director.

The donation for this charity tournament is $125, which includes hors d'oeuvres and a seat in the tournament. Spectator tickets are available for $30. The event will be hosted at the Prairie Rock Brewing Company, 127 South Grove Street, Elgin, IL. Prizes will be awarded to the top three (3) finishers. To register for the tournament or for more information call Kathy Melone at 847-697-2880 ext. 33.
