The Poker Players Alliance is expanded its current political convention-charitable initiative by partnering with the influential American Gaming Association for the benefit of the Paralyzed Veterans of America – this time involving Republican poker players.
 
Following its fund raising effort planned for the Democratic Party's  national convention in Denver later this week, the PPA  has plans for the Republican National Convention too. Scheduled for September 3rd at 116 First Avenue North in Minneapolis, the initiative includes a VIP reception that will be held from 10:00pm until 10:30pm, followed by a charity poker tournament.
 
Those wishing to put up some serious sponsorship money and get involved in the PPA-AGA effort have some useful options:
 
A Royal Flush Sponsorship of $10 000 gets the sponsor eight tournament entries plus four spectator seats during the tournament
 
Full House Sponsors who lay down $5 000 get four tournament entries plus two spectator seats during the tournament
 
Individual Player seats are available at a thousand dollars a pop, whilst spectators only can get in at $250 a head.
