Windy City Charity Basketball LIVE STREAM June 20th
Hey Everyone...so Windy City Poker has put together a special charity event on Saturday June 20th @ Velocity Sports Mokena that is Phase 3 friendly with less than 10 people in the group who will be participating/working the event. It is a basketball competition that will feature a H.O.R.S.E game with 4 players and a NBA format 3 point competition with 4 or 5 players. The event will be streamed LIVE on FB on my page and the new "Windy City Charity Basketball" page. This event features local media and TV/Film industry players and charitable group representatives as well. The event will raise money for www.shadyoakscamp.org and be a lot of fun! Feel free to LIKE the page to watch the action. We will also look to stream some 3 point contests after the celebrity game where YOU can sign up and participate! The current plan for this Multi Camera High Quality HD production is for Leon Rogers and Jason Finn to bring you the action as the hosts along with our 4 players expected to participate that include Tone Kapone, David Kaplan, Jamison McDermott, and Jeffery Beckham. More details to come soon!
