This PokerCares Blog will no longer be updated.
We have moved over to a database solution to better distribute information about poker charity events.
This new solution will allow the following:
1. People to easily find charity poker events by state and month.
2. People to easily find online charity poker events.
3. Ability for people to get updates on new events through RSS and their email
4. Ability for website owners to have these new events post automatically on their websites through a widget. (Myspace and Facebook pending).
We are currently taking submissions for charity poker events and schedules.

“Andrew Prendeville walked away from the poker table at Jackson Rancheria Casino & Hotel with the big check.
Prendeville, who drives for RLR/Andersen Racing in the Indy Pro Series, out-dueled several drivers at the inaugural Speedway Children’s Charities Poker Tournament. Prendeville was presented with a $10,000 check from Jackson Rancheria, with it designated for qualified youth organizations in Sonoma County through Speedway Children’s Charities, the charitable arm of Infineon Raceway.
“It was definitely a case of ’Poker Cares’ at the NPL UK Open Charity Party held at the Loose Cannon Club on 16th August 2007. The party hosted by local celebrity Lisa loud, gave some of the NPL UK Open players and spectators a break from the poker ahead of the final table event the following day. A champagne and jazz band reception was followed by a silent auction which included fabulous prizes donated by fifteen generous sponsors including RBC Capital Markets, Destination Marrakech, Guidetti Fine Foods, AEG Live and celebrity fashion designer Pauline Burrows who were all in attendance. It was in fact Pauline’s celebrity designer shirt fitting that interested the poker players with Matt Dale, Sonny Osman and Mel Judah all bidding for the lot.
“You got to know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em, know when to walk away, know when to run … You can decide to hold ’em – or fold ’em – at the Texas Hold’em Tournament at 2 p.m. Sept. 2 at Comanche Red River Casino in Devol, Okla.
With its $65 buy-in, the poker tournament benefits the Association for Retarded Citizens. Sign up the day of the tournament or call the ARC at 692-2303.”
