Shift4 Payments to Sponsor St. Jude Charity Poker Tournament
The Annual “Against All Odds” Charity Event Raises Money to Pay for Treatment of Children Diagnosed With Cancer
LAS VEGAS — Feb. 21, 2019 — (PRWeb) — Shift4 Payments, the leader in secure payment processing solutions, announced that they will be sponsors of the upcoming St. Jude Against All Odds Poker Tournament. The charity event will take place on Saturday, March 2, 2019, at the Red Rock Casino Resort & Spa in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The event raises awareness and funding for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, which is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Contributions will help ensure that families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
The evening will begin with a red carpet welcome, cocktails and silent auction, followed by dinner and a live auction. It will conclude with the poker tournament. Tickets for the event can be purchased at stjude.org/LVpoker.
Jared Isaacman, CEO of Shift4 Payments, said, “We couldn’t be more proud to be a part of this event and to help St. Jude continue to achieve its goals. The work they do is incredibly important and has changed countless families’ lives.”
