(PRWEB) Peter Morton’s Hard Rock Hotel & Casino presents Vince
Neil’s “Off the Strip” Charity Texas Hold ‘Em Poker Tournament benefiting the
T. J. Martell Foundation on November 11, 2005.
The Joint, located inside of Peter Morton’s Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las
Vegas, will be the site, as well as a sight to be seen, on Friday, November
11th as rocker Vince Neil of Mötley Crüe hosts the inaugural “Off the Strip”
Texas Hold ‘Em Poker Tournament benefiting the T. J. Martell Foundation. This
will not be your typical poker tournament, as some of the hottest dancers from
Las Vegas’ wildest clubs will join Vince for what will prove to be a thoroughly
Seats are limited to the first 150 entrants. There is a $40 entry fee and the
buy-in is $500. Immediately following the tournament there will be an awards
ceremony and a one-of-a-kind live auction, hosted by a very special emcee.
Guest passes will be available to those not playing in the tournament.
Players will vie for an estimated prize pool of $50,000.00. Payouts will go to
the final table of ten. With the lovely ladies and Vince to shake things up,
this could turn out to be a night of fun first and poker second. Actually, it’s

Proceeds from the tournament and the auction will benefit the T. J. Martell
Foundation via the Skylar Neil Foundation, established in 1995 by Vince to

Vince’s charitable efforts have helped raise over one million dollars for the

RJ Demman, Vice President of Casino Marketing for the Hard Rock Hotel and
Casino, is credited with the addition of the dancers. “We have wanted to use

to partner with on this one. It’s going to be a fun night. I am sure we are
going to sell it out. I look forward to this becoming an annual event at The
