Special packages and sponsorships available
Players don’t have to buy commemorative packages through Women in Poker to play in any of the events, but they won’t receive any of the cool swag if they plunk down their tournament entry.
There are three levels of packages available, starting at $99 with the VIP, which includes a T-shirt, a card protector, a patch, a personalized lanyard, and entry into the Hall of Fame lunch.
The other two packages ($45 and $20) don’t include the lunch. Packages must be purchased before the festival begins.
Women in Poker is also looking for businesses interested in becoming sponsors for the event.
