Jamie and Brian Harris of Kentwood City Properties Support Charity Poker Tournament to Fight Hunger


DENVER (February 2009)– Jamie and Brian Harris, leading broker associates and a husband/wife real estate team with Kentwood City Properties, are helping support the First Annual “Ante-Up” Charity Poker Tournament to fight hunger through the SAME Café.  Jamie and Brian made a monetary contribution to the tournament that allows the team’s logo to appear on one of the poker tables.  The fundraising event is scheduled for Friday, March 6, 2009 at the Cap City Tavern at 7 p.m.  The poker tournament will showcase the food of the non-profit SAME Café in a professional tournament environment featuring poker, music, and prizes.  All proceeds will benefit the SAME Café. 

            SAME Café (So All May Eat) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) restaurant that strives to eliminate the ever-growing issue of hunger in the metro Denver area.  Forgoing set menu prices, owners Brad and Libby Birky instead ask their patrons to pay what they can afford for the restaurant’s organic gourmet meals.  Those who have nothing to give are welcome to exchange an hour of volunteer time for a meal.  For more information on the “Ante-Up” poker tournament and SAME Café, visit www.soallmayeat.org or phone the Café at 720-530-6853. 

            “This is a great event and we are pleased to contribute to such a worthy cause,” said Brian Harris.  “Two of the key people who put this event together are friends and real estate clients.  The SAME Café is a great concept and a truly unique way of fighting hunger in our city.  The food is also very healthy.  We encourage everyone to get involved with this charity event as a player, table sponsor, or monetary contributor.  It will be a lot of fun for everyone.”

            Additional sponsors of the event include Tokyo Joes, New Belgium Brewery, Hip Design, Emergenetics International, Oblio’s Pizzeria, Magnolia Hotel, Colorado Athletic Club, Sunflower Market, Coors Brewing Company, Odells Brewing Company, Cap City Tavern, Izze Sparking Juice, Osteria Marco, Poker Player’s Alliance, and Taza de Café.
