Come out to the Highland Strip in the University Area for Ptolemy’s annual Poker Run fundraiser! This event is a progressive party that is equal parts bar crawl and poker game, with prizes for best and worst poker hands, lots of great raffle prizes, and a silent auction full of items you will not want to miss out on!
Stop 1: The Casual Pint! (1:00-2:30 p.m.)
Stop 2: Newby's (2:30-4:00 p.m.)
Stop 3: The Bluff (4:00-6:00 p.m.)
Poker hands are 1 for $20 (includes 1 raffle ticket and koozie/sunglasses) or 3 for $50 (includes 5 raffle tickets and koozie/sunglasses). There is no limit to how many hands you can purchase, and additional raffle tickets are only $1! Added bonus: extra raffle tickets will be included if you purchase poker hands with cash!
The walking distance of this event is less than one city block, and you do not have to know a thing about Poker to come and play with us! Proceeds benefit the Carnival Memphis Children’s Charities. We hope to see you there!
