Calgary Flames players, coaches, alumni and local celebrities will face-off against more than 400 participants in the sold-out Texas Hold’em charity event. Participants will play to win the celebrity at their table’s jersey autographed and personalized. Also included in the event are raffles, a live and silent auction, great buy-back opportunities and much more.
This year, thanks to GGPoker, Canadian poker champion Daniel Negreanu will be in attendance. Negreanu has won six World Series of Poker bracelets and two World Poker Tour titles. Negreanu will be a guest and host at the event and not competing in the Flames tournament.
Over the previous 15 events, the Flames Ambassadors’ Celebrity Poker Tournament has raised over $5.8 million for the Calgary Flames Foundation. This will be the first time the poker tournament has been hosted since February 2020.
