Karina Jett to Make an Appearance in Vegas

January 24, 2012

Pro poker player Karina Jett is scheduled to help promote the Ante4Autism charity poker event in Las Vegas next week. The poker community has long been associated with charitable causes due in part to the benevolence of poker players in general.

The event will take place on January 31 at 7:00 p.m. at Binions in Downtown Vegas. Ante4Autism is sponsored by home furnishing execs and raises money for autism research.

Co-host and PMD Furniture Direct exec Jerry Williams says, “We are very excited to have Karina Jett help us at our event. She is one of the top professional poker players in the world.”

The event will also include a silent auction carried out by the Pacific Auction Co.

Co-host and PMD Furniture Direct exec Scott Graham says, “We will have approximately 30 fine art, sports, celebrity and other collectibles, photography, antiques, jewelry and ladies accessories and travel and leisure items. We encourage everyone to bring their checkbooks and credit cards to bid and buy these incredible items.”

This event is open to the public and Las Vegas Market attendees. Interested parties may register online and/or make donations at ante4autism.com.

Karina has more than $140K in tourney winnings and has placed 4th in two WSOP events—the 2003 Lades Stud and the 2004 Ladies Limit Hold ‘em events. She has also appeared on GSN’s Poker Royale Battle of the Sexes, and in London at the 2005 London Open, Karina and her husband, also a poker player, Chip Jett, became the first married couple to make the same televised final table.
