The 2013 Anthrocon Charity Poker Tournament! -- Official Announcement
After several long years of work and patience, we are finally able to bring to you The Anthrocon 2013 Charity Poker Tournament! This No-Limit Texas Hold 'Em tournament will be held on Friday, 5 July, starting at 3:00pm in the Meeting Room, DLCC 413-415, with all proceeds given to this year's charity, Equine Angels Rescue. The buy-in for this inaugural tournament is $20, and re-buys are available for another $10, until the first break.
Prizes for this tournament will be forthcoming, however the list includes membership for next year's Anthrocon, as well as other assorted artist commissions and miscellaneous prizes. Also, if you are willing to donate prizes for the Tournament, we would be most grateful! We hope that we will be able to provide an exciting prize support package for players, but the best way to ensure that we will have bigger and better prizes in subsequent years is to donate to the featured charity, namely Equine Angels Rescue.
The main purpose of The Anthrocon 2013 CPT is not just to have fun, but also to give to a worthy cause. The mission for this year's charity, Equine Angels Rescue, is "to provide a safe haven for abandoned, abused, unwanted, neglected or slaughter bound horses." We want to combine our player's love of poker with the generosity that our fandom can provide by donating money to something worthwhile. By our combined efforts, we will help EAR with their work and have fun while doing so!
If there are any questions concerning The Anthrocon 2013 CPT, please contact me, turtyl, CPT Coordinator. The other half of our operations team is our CPT Tournament Director, Syaoran. Thanks go out to Whitefeet for working behind the scenes to get the final approvals set. And of course, Anthrocon and Uncle Kage for giving us the go-ahead to make the CPT a reality.
Hope to see everyone at The Anthrocon 2013 Charity Poker Tournament! Shuffle Up & Deal!
