DETROIT -- The tables will heat up at the Red Wings' inaugural Hockeytown Hold’Em Tournament presented the Motor City Casino.

Be part of the action on Monday, November 5 as the Wings ante-up for charity in this Texas hold’em format poker tournament. 
For a $500 donation to the Detroit Red Wings Foundation, you can try your hand and test your nerves going head-to-head with Nicklas Lidstrom, Henrik Zetterberg and the rest of the 2007-08 Red Wings.

Beginning at 4:30 p.m., you will be treated to a cocktail reception at Iridescence, Motor City Casino’s four-diamond restaurant where you can raise the stakes and bid on your favorite Red Wings' player to play along-side during the event. The action fires up inside the Poker Room at 6 p.m.
Prizes will be awarded to the top three finishers, including a grand prize trip for two with the team to an away game on Red Bird II during the 2007-08 season. Second-place will receive a suite for a Red Wings' home game during the 2007-08 regular-season. Third-place will receive four tickets to a Red Wings' regular-season game including a meet-n-greet session with select players following the game.

A limited number of participant spots are available by calling the Red Wings season tickets office at 313-396-7575. Table sponsorships are also available.

All proceeds will benefit the Detroit Red Wings Foundation. The goal of the Detroit Red Wings Foundation is to satisfy the unique needs of our community through the sport of hockey. The Detroit Red Wings Foundation, a subsidiary of Ilitch Charities for Children, is an IRS recognized 501c3 organization.
