Jennifer Harman Celebrity Poker Tournament

Share this
The Peppermill Resort Casino in Reno, Nevada, will host Jennifer Harman’s fifth annual Jennifer Harman Celebrity Poker Tournament benefitting the Nevada Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals No-Kill Shelter on Saturday, May 21st. The Jennifer Harman Celebrity Poker Tournament is celebrating its third annual Throw Down also - an exciting poker team competition that is expected to reach over 1,000 participants this year due to each year's growth.

The Nevada State Poker Championship will take place in conjunction with the Jennifer Harman Celebrity Poker Tournament and is included in the Heartland Poker Tour's televised programming fall line-up and is expected to be viewed in over 100 million homes across America.  All proceeds will go to benefit the Nevada Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA). Contributions from past Jennifer Harman Celebrity Poker Tournaments have allowed the SPCA sanctuary to extend the community outreach program and expanded the facility with an official unveiling of The Jennifer Harman Wing in 2008.

“The best thing about having a pet is experiencing their unconditional love,” says Harman. “The Nevada SPCA ensures these once abandoned and abused animals are cared for, adopted, or live humanely in its no-kill shelter for the rest of their lives. Everyone who participates is actually saving a life, and that means so much to me.”

Featuring a unique 10-player team format, the Throw Down tournament also allows individual player participation with each team led by a pro poker player or celebrity and the top three finishing teams are determined by the Throw Down points system. Awards are given to both:  a Throw Down team and individual players with the top three teams receiving prize packages, medals, team trophies, and Throw Down packs; the top 100 finishers each receive valuable prizes. Look for more additional prizes including bounties on celebrities and pros, 'pot sweeteners,' 'last woman standing,’ 'most re-buys,' 'on the bubble,' and 'cracked aces.'

The No Limit Holdem Jennifer Harman Celebrity Poker Tournament has a $200+$30 buy-in for individuals and $2,500 per team and you can register online by visiting Fundraising activities begin with a Pacific Auction Company silent auction starting at 11AM; Jennifer Harman Celebrity Poker Tournament at 1PM; and a Throw Down party at 8PM.
