On Sunday, March 11, at The Bazaar At SLS Hotel, A-list celebrities will come together with some of the biggest names in poker for the WPT Foundation Launch Party as they help raise money for the WPT Foundation’s global charity partners. This inaugural event marks the beginning of the poker philanthropy event series WPT Playing for a Better World.
As part of the WPTF Launch Party, attendees will be able to bid on silent auction items featuring everything from an NFL Backstage Pass and a NASCAR Experience with Marianela Pereyra to private poker lessons with some of the biggest names in poker like Poker Hall of Famer Mike Sexton and Daniel Negreanu. WPT Blog has gotten a sneak peak at some of those special packages and once-in-a-lifetime opportunities up for grabs. Earlier this week, we released a list of famous poker players offering private tutorials. Here’s a brief summary of another one of those items:
Backstage Pass to NASCAR’s Nationwide Series with WPT Guest Anchor Marianela Pererya – Priceless
You and a guest will accompany WPT Guest Anchor Marianela Pereyra for an all-access pass to NASCAR’s Nationwide Series at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana on March 25th. The Royal Purple 300 is the fifth event on the Nationwide Series and will feature the biggest stars of NASCAR. Marianela will escort you behind the scenes to see how the race is filmed, check out the stock cars in the garage and if you’re nice, she’ll even buy you and your guest some hot dogs and beers. If you love NASCAR or have ever been curious to see a race from beyond behind the scenes, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
