Detroit Red Wings to Host Charity Poker Tournament


DETROIT — More than 100 fans will have the chance to face off against a yet to be named Red Wings player in Texas Hold’em on March 2, at the Motor City Casino Hotel Charity Poker Tournament.

The poker tournament benefits the Detroit Red Wings Foundation and fans can reserve a seat by making a $400 donation to the foundation.

All poker players will receive a gift and an overnight room from Motor City Casino and Hotel. The top 10 finishers will be awarded prizes, including the grand prize trip for two on Red Bird III — the official team plane of the Detroit Red Wings. Additional prizes include a suite for Red Wings home games during the 2015-16 regular season; tickets to an upcoming home game; and autographed, game-used hockey sticks.
