It’s time to ante up the stakes on childhood drowning prevention during Live Like Jake’s 3rd Annual “Poker 4 Prevention” Charity Tournament. The Palm Beach Gardens-based foundation will host the fundraising event at the Palm Beach Kennel Club in West Palm Beach on September 12, starting at 12 p.m. Tickets for the Texas Hold ‘Em-style tournament are $50 per person, and cover the initial buy-in. Re-buys are $20 each. The Prize Pool is 50 percent of the buy-ins and re-buys, with awards going to the top 10 percent of the final players.
“While last year’s event was virtual, we had more than 50 players participating and it was a huge success,” said Keri Morrison, organization founder and mother to Jake, who was lost in a tragic drowning incident. “We are so grateful to be able to hold our event once more in the Poker Rooms at the Palm Beach Kennel Club, where we can welcome even more players. This event helps us raise funds to support drowning prevention and to create awareness of the importance of safety measures that should be in place in and around water. And we do it all while have a great time together.”
Participants and spectators can also participate in the 50/50 raffle, as well as the Live Like Jake prize raffle. Food and beverages are available at the Palm Beach Kennel Club’s Paddock Restaurant and snack bar. Space is limited and tickets may be purchased by visiting Live Like Jake Poker 4 Prevention Tournament.
