Poker Tournament to Benefit American Association of Suicidology

2 Nov

What:  Texas Hold’em No Limit Poker Tournament and Bingo

When:  Saturday, November 20th, 2010, at 5:00 pm

Where:  The Diamond Club at The Ballpark in Arlington

Why:  Losing loved ones to suicide is a horrible fate.  Our goal, as survivors of suicide, is to prevent future suicides.  The AAS (American Association of Suicidology) is a wonderful cause that provides support for survivors of suicide, and works diligently to prevent suicide.  November 20th is National Survivors of Suicide Day, and we will join together to raise funding for this great cause.

Silent Auction: There will be a silent auction during the event, so please bring cash or checks to cover your bids.

Poker: Everyone starts with a $4,000 chip stack.  There will be 15-minute blinds with the first blinds starting at $25-50.  During the first hour if you run out of chips you will have one opportunity to re-buy for $40.  At the break we will have a chip (color) up.  As the tables get smaller people will change tables until we get to the final table.  1st and 2nd place receive a prize.

Cost:  $50 pre-registration fee, or $75 at the door.  The cost covers dinner, $4,000 in poker chips or 5 sheets of bingo.  There will be a 1st and 2nd place prize for poker, and a prize for each bingo game.

To pre-register, please email with the names of your attendees, and whether you wish to play poker or bingo.   You will receive an invoice for payment through Paypal, or you may write a check to The Jack Eight Remembrance Fund (mail to Jessica Schuler, 1229 Alliance Blvd. Rhome, TX 76078).  If you choose to pay at the door, we will accept cash or checks. No credit cards will be accepted.

Donations: Donations for the auction are still being accepted.  If you are able to donate a basket, service, or event package, please email  If you would like to make a donation in honor of your loved one please do so.  We are honored to remember your loved one!

Please join us for a wonderful evening and a great cause!
