The charity event is open to the public and will feature a $250 buy-in Texas Hold'em poker tournament (with optional $100 rebuys).

Online poker website UB.com is donating prizes to final table players in support of Tiffany, who became a Team UB pro in 2008 after breaking records at the World Series of Poker. Prizes donated include a UB-branded 300 chipset, WSOP bag, shirts, baseball hats and more! With bold, trend-setting designs, UB.com swag continues to be the apparel of choice for poker players around the world.

Proceeds from the tournament benefit Victory Junction, an organization founded in 2004 by Paul Newman and Kyle Petty that provides life-changing experiences free-of-charge to kids with chronic medical conditions. To date, the foundation's year-round camps have enriched the lives of more than 11,000 children across 47 US states and three countries worldwide.
