The Calgary Flames Ambassadors’ Celebrity Poker Tournament is back! We are excited to announce that this year’s tournament will be held on Thursday, January 14, 2016 at Deerfoot Inn and Casino.

Our slow blind increases means lots of time at the tables with your favourite Flames’ celebrities. Our buy-back option until intermission allows players to stay in the game longer and makes things interesting for those who refuse to say die. Our popular jersey bounty, where a Flames celebrity who’s knocked out must immediately take the jersey off his back and present it to the player who knocked him out, always makes the highlight reel for those lucky participants! And our silent and live auction items are always unique. In short, a fun-filled experience and good times all around. 

Although players will be competing for all sorts of cash and prizes at the final table, the big winners are our local charities. Last year, we raised $350,000 for local charities to be delivered through the Flames Foundation for Life, including Jamie’s Preschool for children with life threatening illnesses, the Children’s Health Foundation and Camp Kindle through the Kids Cancer Care Foundation.

After nine consecutive sell-outs, sponsorships are high in demand. We expect the only way in for “rookies” is through sponsorship of the event. Please see attached for our various sponsorship levels.

Don’t miss this exciting annual event with your Calgary Flames. We look forward to another great night at the poker tables!
