You Can Meet Phil Hellmuth for Just $16,700
Would you pay $16,700 just to interact with Phil Hellmuth?
QUIT LAUGHING!!! It was a serious....ok, maybe it wasn't a serious question.....
IF ONLY is currently offering poker fans the chance to hang out with Phil during the 2014 World Series of Poker. For the price of a car, or a small doublewide in the south, you can have a drink with the 13-time champion, chat about poker, and get his autograph.
Sound like too much money? What if I told you that the money goes to benefit the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
IF ONLY provides "extraordinary experiences" in the areas of music, sports, entertainment, poker and lifestyle with the purpose of serving charities. Every item or experience sold benefits charity.
Phil's not the only poker player that works with IF ONLY. Antonio Esfandiari, Daniel Negreanu, Phi Laak, Jeff Ma, Live Boeree and Jamie Gold are all listed as luminaries on their site.
If I was someone looking to donate large sums of money, this might be an avenue that I'd explore. Phil and Daniel's charities are most appealing. Negreanu's events supports St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
During this time of year we focus so much on the pros winning money and bracelets and forget that some actually do more. Major props to those pros who know that there's more in life than winning bracelets.
