It seems to have become a personal mission for Howard and Suzie Lederer to attach themselves to important causes and set about throwing fundraising events accordingly. They typically do it several times each year in the name of various charitable organizations, and they are starting off 2009 with an April Fools Charity Poker Tournament to benefit the Las Vegas Springs Preserve.
The Hard Rock Hotel Casino Poker Lounge in Las Vegas will be the location of the April 1st charity tournament. Players are encouraged to come early and enjoy the drinks provided by Patron Tequila and Sense Nectar, along with appetizers and the chance to peruse the multiple items in the silent auction. Eco-friendly gift bags will also be handed out, courtesy of Nevada Energy, Whole Foods Markets, and the Hard Rock Poker Lounge.
The mingling will be followed by a $200 + $30 poker tournament at 3pm, where players will be contributing to a worthy cause and qualifying for amazing prizes, like a Curtis & Co. Watch, a Legacy Alliance crystal trophy, and the grand prize of a $10,000 seat into the 2009World Series of Poker. All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Las Vegas Springs Preserve.
The Springs Preserve in Las Vegas is a 180-acre, non-gaming cultural and historic attraction that has become a gathering place for students and those seeking a beautiful recreational getaway. The preserve is a place to learn about the history of Las Vegas and view the exhibits that show a forward-thinking and environmentally friendly future. There are museums, botanical gardens, galleries, trails, and dining available on site. Years ago, the Native Americans called the area around the springs their home, and the preserve is now a place of history and, potentially, the future. More information can be found at www.SpringsPreserve.org.
