The second annual Par and Poker Celebrity Challenge for Charity, which will be Jan. 29, 2009, will hold its poker tournament at Tampa Bay Downs’ The Silks Poker Room in Tampa. The event, which is co-hosted by ex-NFL Super Bowl champion Seth Joyner and NCAA champion Andy Walker, consists of two parts: an 18-hole golf tournament and a no-limit hold’em poker tournament.
The Par and Poker Celebrity Challenge for Charity is one of the only Super Bowl events free and open to the public. The golf tournament will be held at the TPC Tampa Championship Golf Course. It’s expected to be the largest celebrity poker tournament in Tampa Bay history. Participants will compete for cash prizes and, like last year, the top three finishers will each be awarded a seat to next year’s WSOP.
