MEDIA RELEASE: Pink Poker event at Crown Perth for Breast Cancer support

Media release

On Monday, October 8, Perth poker players are invited to play in the annual Pink Poker tournament in support of the National Breast Cancer Foundation in The Poker Room – it’s the very first charity poker tournament as Crown Perth and the aim is to smash records and make it the biggest fundraising result yet!

It’s time to put on your best poker face and pink outfit for a great cause, with players battling for the title alongside some of Perth’s favourite media personalities, with a bounty of great prizes up for grabs including Crown Perth accommodation packages, restaurant vouchers and much more! Plus there’s a silent auction on the night with a range of great packages on offer.

From 92.9’s Breakfast team, Lisa Fernandez will try her hand at the game for a great cause, joined by Amy Zempilas, Ebbeny Faranda, Narelda Jacobs, Peter Rowsthorn and many more ‘Perthonalities’.

Entry fee into the tournament for players is $200, with 100 per cent of proceeds donated to assist research into the prevention, detection and treatment of Breast Cancer, an illness that has touched the lives of so many Australian families.

The top 10 players will battle it out for great prizes on the final ‘pink’ table, with the winner securing their seat in the Western Classic Poker Championship Main Event later this month.

In the fun spirit of the event, the tournament will be fully themed in pink, complete with pink poker tables and pink balloons, and our croupiers will proudly wear their pink poker event T-shirts, with a few T-shirts up for grabs on the night.

There will be pink cupcakes as well as a full range of savoury and sweet canapé delights prepared by our chefs, with flowing beverages throughout the evening.

This is the tournament’s second year, with last year raising $18,400 for the cause. Funds are donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, one of Crown Perth’s key charity partners.

October is internationally recognised as Breast Cancer Month and Crown Perth is proud to turn ‘pink’ for the month to raise awareness for the cause, also hosting various fundraising initiatives across the month including the sale of Pink Ribbon merchandise.

Breast Cancer Month at Crown Perth will culminate in the Pink Poker tournament, set to boost the fundraising total and make a valuable contribution to the Foundation.

Thank you to sponsor partners Bonds Security Products, Unique Concrete, Fine Wine Partners and Sebastian’s Italian Café for their generous support of this event. To register for Crown Perth’s Pink Poker Tournament, call +61 8 9362 8045 or email
