Get Tickets To Brad Richards' Poker Stars In PEI!! --
CHARLOTTETOWN, PEI (July 11, 2011) – NHL all-star Brad Richards, who recently signed a free agent contract with the New York Rangers, will host Brad Richards’ Poker Stars, a celebrity poker fundraiser, for his charitable foundation and its ongoing efforts to help Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

The event will be held on Thurs., July 28, in the showroom of Fair Isle Ford-Lincoln in Charlottetown. The festivities, which will include a Texas Hold ‘Em tournament and silent and live auctions, begin at 7 p.m. A buffet dinner and beverages are also provided.

“I am excited to host this event for my foundation,” said Richards, the PEI native who led the Dallas Stars in scoring last season and was selected to the NHL All-Star Game. “I have a love for Queen Elizabeth Hospital and all the good they do there, and this event is one way I can help give back to this community and this great hospital.”

Last year, Richards announced a $500,000 donation to the hospital’s pediatric unit. He made the contribution in memory of his cousin and best friend, Jamie Reynolds, who passed away in 1989 with a brain tumour when he was 7 and Brad was almost 9 years old.

In addition to its strong support of Queen Elizabeth Hospital, the Brad Richards Foundation has been a supporter of pediatric hospitals in other cities like Tampa and Dallas, where Brad has previously played.
