Keep Memory Alive is raising the stakes for brain health during the second annual Texas Hold’em Charity tournament on Sept. 27 at the Keep Memory Alive Event Center in Las Vegas. Hosted by casino legend Jack Binion, proceeds from the tournament will support the work of Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health and its fight against neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, ALS and more.
Open to all players 21 and older from beginner to advanced skill levels, the tournament is a $500, with a first-place prize of $10K. Runners-up will score exclusive chef dinners, awe-inspiring trips, exquisite jewelry, and first-class wine. Last year, Doyle “Texas Dolly” Brunson, Daniel “Kid Poker” Negreanu, Barry Shulman, Jack McClelland, and Jon Taffer played alongside participants.
Guests will enjoy amazing food and beverage options from Greene St. Kitchen and Casa Dragones. Exciting silent auction packages will be up for bid, along with other entertainment.
General admission tickets are also available for $125 per person for those not wishing to participate in the tournament, but still wanting to go all-in for brain health and support Keep Memory Alive.
