How to Enter the WSOP Main Event for Only $50

by Lou on June 6, 2007

A raffle conducted by the World Poker Association, the voice of professionalism and ethics in poker worldwide, together with the Corps of Compassion—an organization that feeds needy children in the Las Vegas community—have joined forces to offer a raffle drawing. The winner receives a seat in the main event of the 2007 World Series of Poker (beginning July 6, 2007), along with $1,000 cash toward airfare and lodging costs.

The raffle is open to any member of the World Poker Association. You can join the WPA and purchase a raffle ticket immediately at the WPA Exhibit Booth, located at the 2007 World Series of Poker.

“We are thrilled to announce our commitment to the Corps of Compassion in feeding children in the Nevada community in conjunction with the World Poker Association’s raffle drawing,” said charity chairperson Annie Van Bebber. “Everyone wins,” she added. “Children are fed, someone will win a seat in the main event of the 2007 World Series of Poker, and players will have an opportunity to learn more about how the World Poker Association helps tournament and cash-game poker all over the world.”

All net proceeds from the sale of raffle tickets will go to the Corps of Compassion. “WPA is proud to support Corps of Compassion in its programs of encouragement and the nourishment of needy children in the Clark County School District,” said WPA founder and chairman Jesse Jones.

Each raffle ticket is $50. There are no limits on the number of raffle tickets available for purchase by any one person. All of the net proceeds from ticket purchases go to the Corps of Compassion and will help feed needy children in the Las Vegas community.

Tickets can be purchased at the WPA booth, located 50 steps down the hall from the main entrance to the WSOP tournament. Each raffle ticket is $50. The drawing will be held July 4, 2007.

The drawing is open to persons 21 years of age or older who are members of the World Poker Association.
