(LAS VEGAS, NV) -- The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas will host Vince Neil's Second Annual Off the Strip Poker Tournament inside the Joint on Sunday, November 5, 2006. Celebrities, Poker Pros and Las Vegas’ hottest dancers will join Neil for a wildly entertaining evening. Last year’s tournament raised more than $170,000 to benefit the T.J. Martell Foundation, an organization which has raised more than $215 million to support innovative cancer, leukemia, and Aids research.
Seating for the no-limit Texas hold 'em tournament is limited to the first 150 entrants. The tournament buy-in is $500, plus a $50 entry 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.
Tournament participants and members of the public are invited to visit the Joint 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 Neil will host a special cocktail party, followed by a one-of a kind live charity auction, hosted by adult superstars Tera Patrick and Taylor Wayne, with up-and-comer Sunny Lane. Tournament play will commence at 4:00pm.
All proceeds from the poker tournament and charity auctions will benefit the T.J. Martell Foundation via the Skylar Neil Foundation, established in 1995 by Vince to honor his daughter who passed away from cancer. Since that time, Vince’s charitable efforts have helped raise over one million dollars for the T.J. Martell Foundation. This year’s confirmed sponsors include Eagle Warranty Corp., Counts Kustoms Las Vegas Choppers, Quality One Wireless, Tres Rios Tequila, Red Bull, Las Vegas Golfer Magazine and the Small Town Poker Tour.
