Firekeepers Casino Hotel will sponsor along with Ante Up Magazine and Blue Shark Optics, a charity poker event titled “Restock the Shelves”, the fourth year it will do so.  The event, which runs during the 12:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. “No Limit Texas Hold ’Em” Tournaments Monday January 15 through Wednesday January 17, will provide players an additional 200 tournament chips for each food item donated to the cause.  The maximum bonus chips per player from food donations is 1,000, or the player can get an additional 2,000 bonus chips for a $10 donation.  Additional donations will be accepted although they will not generate bonus chips.

Registration for the events opens two hours prior to each tournament with a $40 buy-in.  Proceeds benefit the Kendall Street Pantry, a joint venture between FireKeepers Casino Hotel and the Food Bank of South Central Michigan.  Last year’s event sponsored by FireKeepers raised more than $1,500 that provided 150 pounds of food, enough for more than 9,000 meals for families in need.  Proceeds from the event during its first three years fed almost 200,000 people.

“The Restock the Shelves initiative is a great way for regional poker players to give back,” noted Kelley Bailey, FireKeepers Poker and Bingo Manager. “Our team is excited to continue this tradition and looks forward to breaking last year’s record of donations.”
