One hundred and forty Australian celebrities, sports personalities and poker professionals gathered at Melbourne’s Crown Casino last month to raise money for the foundation and to battle it out to be crowned ‘Poker Champion’.
Wild Turkey Bourbon ambassador and World Series of Poker Champion, Joe Hachem, donated $25,000 on behalf of Wild Turkey to the foundation.
“We’re proud to support our ambassador, Joe Hachem in his charitable endeavours for the Shane Warne Foundation, an organisation that enriches the lives of so many,” said Wild Turkey senior brand manager, Paul Di Vito.
Michael Chrisanthopoulos from Melbourne eventually took out the tournament and the $25,000 grand prize.
