In case you haven’t bought your ticket to Aces UP! yet (it’s happening this Friday), here are the top ten reasons to do so RIGHT NOW:
  1. Your participation helps a great cause:  Urban Prep;
  2. The grand prize is worth $5,000 (and there are a bunch of other prizes too-bringing the total value of the prize pool to over $10,000);
  3. You could win a fantastic Tiffany & Co watch worth over $3,500 in a raffle (and you don’t even have to play in the tournament to enter the raffle);
  4. Win bragging rights (and a prize) when you send one of our celebrity bounties packing.  Susan Carlson, Ryan Chiaverini, DC Crenshaw, John Fritchey, Alexi Giannoulias, Teddy Greenstein, Jim Houlihan, Natalie Martinez, Stephanie Neely, Jannero Pargo, Richard Roeper, John Rogers, Ameet Sachdev, Jannero Pargo and Chris Zorich are among our celebs daring you to knock them out;
