What do you get when you cross Robin Leach with a rodeo star, a country singer and the city of Las Vegas? If you guessed a topless, British redneck on a mechanical bull (which was my first guess) you’d be wrong. In fact, the real answer is: a pretty snazzy night of cards, all in the name of charity. Robin Leach, the one hit wonder from Lifestyles Of The Rich And Famous, will be serving as Master Of Ceremonies for the T.J. Martell Foundation’s first annual Celebrity Poker Tournament on December 11th, at the Las Vegas Hilton. The T.J Martell Foundation helps to supports leukemia, cancer, and AIDS research and supports eight of the top research hospitals in the United States.
The poker event will take place during National Finals Rodeo Week and will start off with the No-Limit Texas Hold ‘Em Tournament which requires a 500 dollar buy in. Some of the country and rodeo celebrities planning on attending are, Luke Bryan, Charley Pride, Britt Bockius, Tracy Byrd and Justin McBride.
Now listen here bloggers! Before you get all hot and bothered about this rodeo thing, realize that this vegan boy is in no way condoning the “sport.” However, I do think it’s grand that some of our little buckaroos down south are putting their milk money with their mouth is for the sake of a really good cause. So there! To learn more about the T.J Martell Foundation or this here event (spoken with a southern twang) just click HERE.
