Ante Up for a Good Cause

Once again, you've got a chance to do something good and have a great time doing it.

Next Thursday, November 29, join Illinois State Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias; Chicago Sun-Times Columnist & Host of "At The Movies" Richard Roeper; Former Chicago Bear Christopher Zorich, and other local celebrities at the First Annual Aces UP! Celebrity Charity Texas Hold’em Tournament, and compete for over $10,000 in prizes.

Founded by Tim King, Urban Prep is Chicago's first and only charter public school for boys. Urban Prep’s mission is to provide a high-quality and comprehensive college-preparatory educational experience to young men in order to prepare them to succeed in college and beyond. The school is a direct response to the urgent need to reverse abysmal graduation and college completion rates among boys in urban centers. The school is stepping up in a big way to do some great things.

I'll even give you some free advice to help you do well in the tournament - sit at Treasurer Giannoulias' table :)

See you there.

I hear that the Treasurer is actually a really good player! Are you saying it's not true?
