The 10th annual Ante4Autism Poker Tournament, which will take place on a new night (Saturday, Jan. 27) at the Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino during the Winter Las Vegas Market, has gained more industry sponsors.
Joining presenting sponsor Leggett & Platt Inc. and a host of others, Karl and Cathi Glassman agreed again to be $5,000 Diamond sponsors. Protect-A-Bed, Eclipse International and Eastman House each also has pledged $5,000 as Diamond sponsors. In addition, Englander and Kevin Toman have signed on as $250 Bronze sponsors.
“We want to thank (everyone) for their continued support of our kids and adults impacted by autism,” said tournament founder Doug Krinsky. “Stu (Carlitz of Eclipse International and Eastman House) also is a co-host of the event and is a great ambassador for our cause. We moved the event to the evening before the opening of the furniture market to appeal to more local Las Vegas poker players and to avoid conflicts with other furniture industry events.”
Sponsorships and donations can be made by contacting Krinsky at [email protected] or 614-554-0802, or by visiting the tournament’s website, Ante4Autism.com. Event proceeds are donated to several charities that focus on supporting research into autism spectrum disorders and the individuals and families affected by the condition.
