Come enjoy an evening of poker play to help benefit a great cause! On Saturday, November 1, the Santa Clarita Youth Project will be hosting their 2nd Annual Hold ‘Em Not Hassle ‘Em Poker Tournament at the Tournament Player’s Club in Valencia. Guests will have the opportunity to play in a Texas Hold ‘Em Tournament, with exciting prizes for the winners.
There will also be delicious food, beverages, silent auction and an opportunity drawing on the evening of the event. All monies raised will benefit the SCV Youth Project. Access Hollywood’s Tony Potts has agreed to be the host for this year’s event. “I have been a resident of Santa Clarita for five years and I am honored to be involved with the Santa Clarita Valley Youth Project,” said Potts. “It’s an honor to be able to lend support to a group that works hard to help our youth and our community.” Other guests are April Scott (author, actress, model, Deal or No Deal), Mark and Brian and co-host, Preva (KLOS), Larry Elder (radio host, KABC), Sean Valentine (radio host, KBIG 104), Trichelle Canntanella (MTV’s Real World, Dr. Steve O, and Hulk Hogan’s Celebrity Wrestling). Some of the sponsors to date are Gregg Goodman Insurance Agency, Inc., Infinity Wealth Management, The Cigar Lounge, Martin Distributors, Foam Sales and Marketing and Jeffrey Lambert. The Magazine of Santa Clarita is pleased to be a sponsor for this event.
“With just 85 players, we netted over $16,000, which is great for our organization,” states Kim Goldman, Executive Director of the SCV Youth Project. “We expect this event will once again be a sell out at the TPC and are confident that our guests will enjoy a night of fun, that will hopefully mean big money for the Youth Project.
The Santa Clarita Valley Youth Project’s mission statement: To provide a safe, nurturing environment where teens and families are strengthened, empowered and equipped with the tools they need to live successful and fulfilling lives. The SCV Youth Project is here to help. Through crisis intervention, peer mentoring, parent support and group counseling, they are dedicated to changing and improving the lives of youth, parents and families. With an informative web-based program to employment, educational assistance and crisis intervention, all services are free to all youth.
Don’t forget to mark your calendars for November 1, for the Hold ‘Em Not Hassle ‘Em Poker Tournament. Tickets are $125 for individual buy-in for tournament and event and $40 for spectator viewing and silent auction. Sponsorship opportunities are available.
