UB.com's "Hollywood Dave" to Host Cinco de Mayo Fiesta Charity Poker Tournament

"Hollywood Dave" Stann Welcomes Celebrities and Poker Players to Charity Tournament on May 5th in Support of the Friends of El Faro Mexican Orphanage

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - May 4, 2010) - "Hollywood Dave" Stann of Team UB is anteing up for the children. The Team UB pro is slated to host a charity poker tournament in Hollywood on May 5th to raise money for an orphanage in Casa Hogar Sion, Mexico. The charity poker tournament gets underway on Wednesday, May 5th at Velvet Margarita Cantina in Hollywood, California. All proceeds collected from the private poker tournament will go to the Friends of El Faro Orphanage.

"If there's one place to be on Cinco de Mayo in Hollywood, the Velvet Margarita is it," said Dave Stann. "The atmosphere is killer, the place just rocks and the charity tourney I'm hosting is always amazing."

The event, heading into its 6th year, is well respected in Hollywood. Past celebrity attendees have included Marlon Wayans, Dan Aykroyd, Jamie Foxx, George Lopez, Vern Troyer and Vince Vaughn. UB.com is donating some poker apparel and merchandise to the evening and a number of Team UB pros will also be in attendance to support the cause.

Dave Stann is a member of UB.com's team of pros. Stann, a blackjack sensation and recognized TV personality, joined Team UB in 2008. Prior to joining the likes of Phil Hellmuth and Annie Duke, Stann was part of an elite team of international card counters, cleaning up on the high-stakes tournament blackjack circuit.

In 2006, Stann dedicated 6 months of his life to mastering the art of poker by trading blackjack and poker lessons with UB.com's Annie Duke, the current NBC National Heads-Up Champion.

His lessons paid off.
