Take ‘Em to School World Poker Tour
If you're in NYC on Monday, July 25th, I hope you'll join me at the second annual Take 'Em to School World Poker Tour poker tournament to benefit the Rewarding Achievement (REACH) program that Bill Ackman and I co-founded a few years ago. REACH (http://reachnyc.org) gives thousands of NYC inner-city high school students academic support and scholarships for passing AP exams.
David Einhorn, Jason Mudrick (last year's winner), John Sabat, Mike Sabat, Sean Dobson and Roger Taylor at Amherst Securities, and of course Bill and I (among others) have all purchased tables. Prizes for the winners who make the final table of the tournament include a main event seat at the World Series of Poker, lunch with Seth Klarman, five nights at a world-class private beach home in Lamu, Kenya, three nights at a penthouse in St. Maarten, and golf and auto racing packages.
Seats for poker players are $1,000; it's $200 if you just want to come to the cocktail reception and support the program.

I hope to see you there!
