Isle charity tournament for Women In Distress, Children's Fund

The Isle Casino and Racing and All In Free Poker are seeking players for the Second Annual PermaPlate Charity Poker Tournament at noon Sunday, Jan. 6, at the Isle in Pompano Beach.

The top prize is $7,000 cash, and other prizes include a vacation to the Hacienda Tres Rios in Riviera Maya, Mexico, with $300 airfare credit or a vacation to the Royal Towers Run-of-House Room in Atlantis Paradise Island, Bahamas, for two with $300 airfare credit

Buy-in is $200, which includes a champagne brunch at Farmer’s Pick buffet from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. Brunch only for non-players is $20.

Players start with 10,000 units, and a $20 dealer tip adds 2,000 more. Re-entries will be available for the first hour for $100, for 10,000 units.

Proceeds go toward helping families and children in South Florida.   Women In Distress provides free services such as crisis intervention, safe shelter, and counseling to victims of domestic violence and their children. The Sun Sentinel Children’s Fund's portion of the proceeds will be matched at 50 percent by the McCormick Foundation and allocated to organizations supporting the needs of local low-income children and families.

“This event is important, not only for the benefit of Women In Distress and Sun Sentinel Children’s Fund but for the community as a whole,” said Mary Riedel, President and CEO of Women In Distress.  “Everyone wins – especially the families and kids who are helped.”
