Monday, May 17, the World Series of Poker, via Project Full House, presented NOAHH with a check for $10,000 at Harrah’s Casino Hotel in New Orleans. The final Circuit of the 2009-2010 World Series of Poker (WSOP) has come to an end at Harrah’s Hotel Casino in New Orleans, and to cap off the excitement and celebrate the WSOP grand finale, Harrah’s Entertainment and WSOP Circuit sponsor Cabot Creamery Cooperative presented NOAHH $10,000 from proceeds raised through Cabot’s WSOP Project Full House initiative.
Throughout the course of the eight-month, 10-city WSOP Circuit, players from each Circuit event were encouraged to donate one to three percent of their winnings to Project Full House. One hundred percent of the proceeds benefit NOAHH’s restoration efforts throughout greater New Orleans.
"The farm family owners of Cabot Creamery Cooperative are proud to be a sponsor of the WSOP Circuit through our Project Full House initiative,” said Cabot Creamery Cooperative Senior Vice President of Marketing, Roberta MacDonald. “In partnership with Harrah’s Entertainment, we’re honored to present NOAHH with a check for $10,000 to help them continue the good work they do to build houses for those in need throughout the greater New Orleans region.”
The 2009-2010 WSOP Circuit began in October 2009 at Horseshoe Hammond and included stops at Harrah’s properties in Southern Indiana, Lake Tahoe, Atlantic City, Tunica, Council Bluffs (Iowa), Rincon (Southern California), St. Louis, Las Vegas and ends in May in New Orleans.
