A Place Called Home's 9th Annual Stars & Strikes Celebrity Bowling & Poker Tournament to Support Inner City Youth is on Thursday, March 12th, 2015 at PINZ Bowling & Entertainment Center. Stars & Strikes is a benefit event created to be a fun-filled, celebrity spotting evening that raises funds and awareness to support local youth through programs in education, the arts, health and college preparation at "A Place Called Home."

Join us for the Celebrity Poker Tournament. Bring your best poker face and join us in a Vegas style No-Limit All-In Texas Hold'em competition featuring the gorgeous "Dealer Dolls"! Year after year our poker tournament has generated some buzz and growing participation from our supporters, donors and celebs. We promise you will be entertained, and feel great about the contribution you are making back to APCH plus you get a chance to take home some really cool stuff.

Have you always wanted to play in a Texas Hold'em Poker Tournament but are intimidated? The fabulous "Dealer Dolls" are hosting a FREE beginner's clinic at Stars & Strikes. Even non-poker aficionados can learn the game. The FREE clinic runs from 7:15 to 7:45 in the poker room. No sign up necessary.
