Team UB.com pro and former Amazing Race contestant Tiffany Michelle has gone from racing around the world to teaming up with racecar drivers for charity—and once again, online poker giant UB.com is along for the ride. On Thursday, March 3rd, Tiffany will host the Victory Junction Black Ace Celebrity Charity Poker Tournament at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV, along with special guest, NASCAR driver Kyle Petty.

The charity event is open to the public and will feature a $250 buy-in Texas Hold'em poker tournament (with optional $100 rebuys). Players will have a chance to take a seat at the tables with their favorite celebrities, including: 90210’s Ryan Eggold; ABC’s Bachelor Pad winners Natalie Getz and Dave Good; NASCAR legend Richard Petty; former Miss USA and Host of E!’s Bridalplasty, Shanna Moakler; Actor Joel David Moore (Avatar, Dodgeball); reality star and Absolute Poker pro Trishelle Cannatella (Real World Las Vegas); Playboy Playmate Izabella St. James; poker pros Maria Ho and Antonio Esfandiari, and many more!

Online poker website UB.com is donating prizes to final table players in support of Tiffany, who became a Team UB pro in 2008 after breaking records at the World Series of Poker. Prizes donated include a UB-branded 300 chipset, WSOP bag, shirts, baseball hats and more! With bold, trend-setting designs, UB.com swag continues to be the apparel of choice for poker players around the world.

Proceeds from the tournament benefit Victory Junction, an organization founded in 2004 by Paul Newman and Kyle Petty that provides life-changing experiences free-of-charge to kids with chronic medical conditions. To date, the foundation’s year-round camps have enriched the lives of more then 11,000 children across 47 US states and three countries worldwide.

UB.com has an impressive record of supporting charities. The online poker site sponsors a number of online and land-based charity events each year, attracting a roster of star pros who love giving back to their communities including Tiffany Michelle and new Team UB Pro Prahlad Friedman. Tiffany supports a number of charity events each year and is excited to be adding her name as “host” to this very important cause.
