All proceeds from the event will go to the Maximum Hope Foundation.

“This is my third year hosting a poker tournament to benefit Maximum Hope, a small grass-roots foundation I started about 12 years ago,” stated Garrett. “Ninety-five cents from every dollar we raise goes to helping families who are facing their darkest days as they care for a child with a life-limiting illness.

Even the smallest donation can help one of our many families with the daily necessities that so many of us take for granted.”

The poker tournament is a No-Limit Hold’em event requiring an entry fee of $250. Participants will have the opportunity to re-buy within the first two hours of play for an additional $100. There also will be a final add-on available at the conclusion of the two-hour re-buy time period.

The winner will take home a guaranteed $10,000 first-place prize. All participants must be 21 years of age or older.

Founded by Garrett in 2000, the Maximum Hope Foundation is a non-profit organization offering practical aid to families with a child under the age of 18, diagnosed with a life-limiting illness. The Foundation works quickly to supply struggling families with practical necessities such as rent, utility payments, groceries, gas and gift cards for everyday items.
