Cabot Creamery is sponsoring a the “Put A Bad Beat on Hunger” No Limit Texas Holdem Poker Tournament at Borgata on Saturday, July 14, 2018 at 11am for the benefit of the Community FoodBank of New Jersey, Southern Branch. The goal is to raise funds and generate awareness of the life-saving work the FoodBank does for South Jersey communities. Over the past nine years, the Bad Beat On Hunger has raised more than $400,000 for the Food Bank.
The farm-family owners of Cabot Creamery Co-operative salute the vital work the Community FoodBank of NJ, Southern Branch does to help combat hunger and break the cycle of poverty for families throughout the greater South Jersey region.
Some of the nation’s top professional poker players, including Lee Childs, Roy Winston, Amanda Musumeci, and Bernard Lee, will battle it out to benefit the Community FoodBank of New Jersey. Also joining the friendly fray are members of the media, including WOGL’s Marilyn Russell and Hugh E. Dillon, along with representatives from Cabot Creamery Cooperative, the Community FoodBank of New Jersey, and several celebrity guests.
The final two players left standing will be awarded a Bad Beat Champion Trophy from Borgata as well as a $3,500 entry voucher into the WPT Borgata Poker Open Championship in September 2018 courtesy of Cabot Creamery Co-operative.
