National Autism Association Holds No Limit Hold'em Poker Tournament

The National Autism Association (NAA) announced that they will be holding their first No Limit Hold'em poker tournament on Thursday, November 2nd at the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa in Atlantic City. The event will be held in the casino hotel's new 85 table poker room. Registration for the game will begin at 5:00 pm, to be followed by the poker game.

"Borgata is dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of others. Hosting the NAA Tournament is consistent with that mission," said Ray Stefanelli, Borgata's Director of Poker Marketing.

"It's real Texas Hold'em action and excitement. Poker players can win while supporting a great cause," he added.

The entry fee for the tournament is $250, which includes the buy-in to Borgata's nightly No Limit Texas Hold'Em Tournament, a $100 contribution to NAA, admission to an exclusive players' lounge at Mixx, and special gifts given by corporate sponsors. A non-player package of $130 is also offered for those who don't player poker but would like to join the fun.

"Autism has reached epidemic proportions in the U.S., affecting 1 in 166 children. We hope the growing popularity of poker playing will offer an enjoyable venue for people to partner with NAA in finding a cure for the hundreds of thousands of children now diagnosed with autism," said Wendy Fournier, parent and NAA President.
