Join us for the 2017-18 Texas Hold ‘Em Tournaments

Whether you’re a poker pro or a beginner we invite you to come enjoy a Saturday afternoon with us for some fun in support of the Utah Arts Festival. Five pre-qualifying tournaments will take place leading up to a match-up between the best-of-the-best at The Final Table during the 2018 Masquerade Party. The first and second place winners of each tournament will qualify for a seat at The Final Table.

The "buy-in" for each pre-qualifier is a suggested donation of $20. "Re-buys" will be available for a suggested donation of $10. All donations made during the pre-qualifying tournaments are tax-deductible and count toward our Friends with Benefits (link to uaf.org/friends) program. Prizes and opportunity drawings will be offered throughout the afternoon courtesy of our partners.

All pre-qualifying tournaments will take place at Piper Down Pub and will begin promptly at Noon. Advance RSVP is strongly suggested in order to ensure your seat.
