A GOOD REASON TO LEAVE MONEY IN ATLANTIC CITY
OVER HALLOWEEN WEEKEND
The Mockingbird Foundation has announced The Phamily Poker Classic, a no-limit Texas Hold 'Em tournament in Atlantic City to take place in the Tropicana's poker room on the afternoons of October 30 (tournament) and 31 (final table) the same weekend Phish performs at Boardwalk Hall in AC.
There will be both cash and non-cash prizes, and some of the $120 ticket price (the "buy-in") will benefit the Foundation. This event is being graciously organized by Phish fan Kevin Young, with the assistance of others including Foundation volunteers, and none of us are benefiting financially from this event.
For more details and to purchase tickets, please see the event's website. If you play, you will not miss any Phish performances. This event is expected to sell-out. It is unlikely that tickets (seats) will be sold at the door.
Whether you play poker or not, you can consider donating an "ante" or "blind" - $5 or $10 - to the Foundation. Your donation is fully tax-deductible. The Foundation is run entirely by volunteers with very little overhead, and your support goes to music education.
Some individuals will play in the tournament as "bounty players" for the Foundation, with non-cash prizes to be awarded to any player who busts them out of the Tournament (one bounty player per table is expected).
If you have anything that you would like to donate for the benefit of the non-cash prize pool, then please email Charlie@phish.net.
