Ante4autism recently announced that their 10th event, presented by Leggett & Platt, will be held Saturday, 1/27 at the Golden Nugget. “We moved the event to the evening before the opening of the furniture market to appeal to more local Las Vegas poker players and to avoid conflicts with other furniture industry events,” stated Founder Doug Krinsky. Krinsky went on to say, “The Golden Nugget worked with us to move the event and we thank them for your help and support.” (Pictured above: Michael Pitman, Vice President of Ashley accepts the 2017 Double Diamond Sponsor plaque from Co-Host Myra Stone)
