By on January 24, 2017

Wellington, Fla. – The Tyler McLellan Foundation is getting ready for the 7th Annual “Tyler’s Team” Charity Poker Classic being held on Sunday March 26, 2017 at the Palm Beach Kennel Club. This will be the seventh consecutive year the Palm Beach Kennel Club has hosted this event.  Kevin McLellan says, “we are very happy with the relationship we have developed over the years with the management and staff, they are the best to work with and they do everything they can to accommodate us to ensure a successful event every year”.  Since the first event in 2011, this event has grown, and we always want to make this event bigger and better for everyone.

The Texas Hold’Em fundraiser will offer players a great day of camaraderie and some good poker and fun while helping a very worthy cause that helps to keep kids in youth sports.  The event will offer players a complimentary buffet and soft drinks from 12:00-1:00pm along with celebrity bounties and a silent auction.  Buy in is $50.00 with $20.00 re-buys and $10.00 add on’s.  The tournament will start at 1pm sharp and pay the top 10% of the field.  The winner takes home the “Tyler’s Cup” trophy, a 2017 WSOP Event Seat ($580.00), along with a cash prize.

 TMF will also be having an “Ultimate 50/50” raffle that will start in January and will be drawn the day of the event.  The best part of this raffle is: “you don’t have to be present to win”.  Tickets are $5.00 each and 6 for $20.00 and will be available through TMF staff and online at: www.eventbrite.com

 Sponsorship packages are now available for sponsors to join and help support “Tyler’s Team” in 2017.
