Raise Money With Our Poker Tournaments!
If you’re looking for a unique way to get money for your organization, poker tournaments from The Party Team are the answer! Our clients have had tons of success with these events in the past, and you can too! We provide everything you need to ensure the event runs smoothly, from tables and chips and cards to professional dealers.
How Do Poker Tournaments Work?
We make it easy to set up your fundraiser. All you have to do is come up with a guest list and a buy-in. Players who buy-in will be given poker chips to start the night. Typically, everyone will start with $5,000 in chips. As players get “knocked out” of the game, they can rebuy to get back into the game. Also, we can encourage “add-ons,” where players can buy additional chips as they play.
To ensure that the tournament doesn’t last too long, we will set up a blind structure and an itinerary of the night. The tournament consists of rounds – at the start of each new round, the blinds go up. We’ll adjust the timing and chip values based on your guest and table counts.
Our professional dealers will assist any new players, and they’ll keep track of those who get knocked out. As the number of players goes down, we’ll consolidate tables until there is only one left. Those at the final table are in for top prizes, as determined by you before the event. The entire tournament is run by a Pit Boss, who handles the logistics so you don’t have to worry about a thing.
How Much Can I Raise?
Poker tournaments are one of the best money-making opportunities. We have many clients who’ve raised over $10K in a single night. Depending on the number of guests and the buy-in costs, you can get a lot of cash for your organization. Best of all, you can combine poker tournaments with other fundraising options, such as a 50/50 raffle, casino tables, or a silent auction.

While the focus of your event is fundraising, we have plenty of other options to help your guests stay entertained! Add-ons can include:
- Event DJs – Keep the music flowing all night long! We can also facilitate announcements throughout the night.
