|The World Poker Tour Ladies' Night, held at the Bicycle Casino is one of the most popular events on tour, with this year's competition hoping to show an even higher level of play.|
Actress Jennifer Tilly and several of poker's up-and-coming ladies will compete at the event in support of breast cancer research.
The World Poker Tour has kicked off the charity drive with its first annual online auction on its website, WorldPokerTour.com featuring several VIP packages including four day-spa gift certificates, a seat at this year's WPT Celebrity Invitational in Los Angeles, and 12 box seat tickets to an LA Clippers basketball home game.
Net proceeds from the auction, which runs through September 5th, will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
To complement the online auction, the Bicycle Casino will host a gala and cocktail hour on August 19. Ladies will walk the PINK carpet and bid on the items to show their support for breast cancer.
