Jennifer Harman’s love for cats and dogs led her to start a charity poker event way back in 2007. The inaugural Jennifer Harman Celebrity Poker Tournament, benefiting the Nevada SPCA, was first held at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas in April 2007.
1998 World Series of Poker gold bracelet winner Kirk Morrison would end up winning the event, earning a free entry the 2007 WSOP Main Event. Morrison pledged to donate a portion of his eventual 56th place winnings to charity.
Over $125,000 was raised for the Nevada SPCA. Harman continues to host the event; the 2015 edition was recently presented as part of the WSOP Circuit schedule at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas.
