Wings Poker Tournament

January 20, 2011

The tables are heating up for MotorCity Casino Hotel’s Red Wings Charity Poker Tournament. Be a part of the action on Wednesday, March 18 as the Wings ante up for charity in this Texas Hold’em format poker tournament.

For a $250 donation to the Detroit Red Wings Foundation, fans can test their skills going head-to-head with members of the 2008-09 Red Wings. The evening kicks-off with a cocktail reception for players and participants at 5 p.m. in the conference center ballroom. The action fires up inside the Poker Room at 6:30 p.m. All participant donations will go directly to the Foundation.

MotorCity Casino Hotel will generously donate an additional $10,000 to the DRW Foundation and its charitable causes. MotorCity Casino Hotel is also offering all tournament participants a complimentary stay in a deluxe room in the luxurious 400-room hotel the night of March 18, along with a complimentary spa treatment at D’Tour Spa.

“We are thrilled to be a part of this unique event with MotorCity Casino Hotel,” said Steve Violetta, Red Wings senior vice president of business affairs. “This promises to be an exciting evening for everyone, and an entertaining way for our fans to help us raise funds for the Detroit Red Wings Foundation.”

Prizes will be awarded to the top 10 finishers of the tournament, including a grand prize trip for two with the team on Red Bird II to a Wings road game. The second-place finisher will receive a suite for a Red Wings home game during the 2008-09 regular-season, including a meet-and-greet with select players after the game. The third-place finisher will receive four tickets to a Wings regular-season game in the Legends Club. Those who place No. 4-10 will receive an autographed Red Wings jersey.
