The Jennifer Harman Poker Tournament for the Nevada SPCA

One of the biggest successes of the poker industry has been its willingness to give to those who are less fortunate. For the 3rd straight year, poker player Jennifer Harman will harness that charitable spirit in raising cash for the Nevada Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The charity poker event will be held at the Venetian casino on the Las Vegas Strip at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, April 17th, 2009.

The Nevada SPCA is a nonprofit group that promotes humane treatment of animals, makes referrals for low cost neutering and vaccination of animals and challenges individuals to be the best possible pet owner. The Jennifer Harman Charity poker tournament is a fan favorite. Poker events range from the silent auction to the red carpet walk featuring celebrities and their pets, to the main event: a $300 + $30 buy-in cost event with $100 re-buys during the first three 20 minute levels and a single $100 add-on for twice the beginning stack.

Player expectations have been exceeded for the past two years, with the event raising about $130,000 the first year. Last year's poker event attracted around 275 poker players and doubled the first year's donations by earning $300,000 for the Nevada SPCA. Harman said that the outpouring of support for the event has been astounding.

Jennifer Harman is hoping to make this year's Nevada SPCA the larges and the most meaningful SPCA in history. Harman said that this year's SPCA is especially meaningful because of the ongoing economic crisis. Harman added that a lot of pet owners are forced to abandon their pets because they cannot afford to keep them anymore. The Nevada SPCA aims to help pet owners keep their pets despite the hard times.
