The cost of admission is $400 for entry into the poker tournament, plus a silent auction and cocktail hour. Proceeds from the tournament will benefit the Hundley Foundation, a nonprofit founded in 2019 to help families affected by epilepsy and other disabilities.
“From championing epilepsy and fostering epilepsy awareness and community development to our fatherhood program and providing grift to families during the holidays, the Hundley Foundation is a dynamic force for change,” CSOP wrote about the event. “We believe in the power of collective action and are resolute in our mission to create and support initiatives that focus on health, wellness, and education in disenfranchised communities.”

The night will kick off with cocktail hour at 6 p.m. where attendees will be treated to appetizers and an open bar.
The turbo tournament will then kick off at 7 p.m. as players compete for several prizes with the eventual winner getting a $10,000 seat into the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event.
The charity event also features a silent auction with packages including a two-night stay at ARIA, two Vegas Golden Knights glass seats, a Brad Garrett Meet and Greet and comedy show and a celebrity cash game seat.
Hellmuth isn’t the only poker star whom attendees will have the chance to rub elbows with. Just last month, Mike Matusow finished runner-up in the CSOP Awards Tournament as he spent hours playing with fellow attendees.
