Second Annual Cavaliers Against Cancer Charity Poker Tournament

Hate Cancer? The UVaClub of Charlottesville would like to extend a warm welcome to all Virginia alumni, family, and friends to the 2nd Annual Cavaliers Against Cancer charity Texas Hold'em tournament on March 24th at the John Paul Jones Arena to raise money for the UVA Cancer Center, and Streaking the Lawn is proud to once again be a sponsor for this great event. With over $5,500 in prizes that have been generously donated by sponsors and three tiers of Texas Hold'em tournaments (Beginner, Main, High-Stakes), there's something for everyone who wants to help the fight against cancer. All tournament participants receive entry into JPJ, a seat at their chosen tournament, a free event cup, a behind-the-scenes-tour of the John Paul Jones Arena, a lunch buffet, and a chance to win great tournament prizes, door prizes, and other fun giveaways. The event cup will also give players food and drink discounts at McGrady's Irish Pub after the event.

Last year the Cavaliers Against Cancer raised almost $3,700 for cancer research and this year their goal is to raise over $7,500. Card players of all abilities are encouraged to register for the event which supports the Rebecca Clary Harris, M.D. Memorial Fellowship at the UVA Cancer Center. Participants will be eligible for great prizes that will be given out as door prizes and to the top finishers of each of our three tournaments.
