The PokerGO Studio at ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, will host a charity poker tournament on Friday, September 8, 2023, to benefit the Injured Police Officers Fund (IPOF).

Doors open at 5 p.m. PT, and the tournament begins at 6 p.m. with a buy-in of $1,000. Rebuys are $500, and players have two different add-on options of $500 or $1,000. The IPOF charity poker tournament prize pool will be split evenly, with 50% going to the IPOF and 50% being returned to players via the standard ARIA poker tournament payouts.

Beginning at 7 p.m. PT, there will be an additional way for players to contribute to the IPOF via the Sean Perry Challenge. Perry will be taking on any challengers in $1,000 heads-up matches. If Perry loses, he will donate $2,000 to the IPOF if he wins.

What is the Injured Police Officers Fund

The Injured Police Officers Fund (IPOF) was formed in October of 1982 after LVMPD Motor Officer James MacLaren was injured while on duty at a traffic stop. The IPOF was created to help reduce the financial burden suffered by Police Officers and their families in the event of a line-of-duty injury or death. The IPOF provides monetary assistance to these Officers and their families through money-raising initiatives held in Las Vegas.

How to Donate to the Injured Police Officers Fund

For those unable to play in the Injured Police Officers Fund charity poker tournament, there are other ways to contribute to help Police Officers and their families.

Tax-deductible contributions will be accepted during the event or can be made through the IPOF website. For more information, email the IPOF at [email protected] or via telephone at (702) 380-2840.
