The annual Women’s Poker Classic is being held at Cascades Casino in Langley, British Columbia between February 17 and 20. This is the largest women’s event in Canada and for the 6th year, this event supports the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Over the previous five events, the WPC has raised over $100,000 in donations benefiting the
Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. The popularity of the event has been evident with 600+ players from outside the lower mainland of Vancouver including Vancouver Island, Okanagan, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario, Nunavut, Washington, Oregon and Pennsylvania.

There are three tournaments taking place with an estimated $200,000 prize pool. Female poker pro Vanessa Rousso will also be at the WPC where she will present her signature Ladies-Only Boot Camp at the Cascades Casino. 

Last year’s winners include Donna Mile (Main Event) and Aimee Todd-Mussett (Shootout Event).

The WPC is in benefit of a worthy cause so please come out and show your support and have a great time in the process. More info can be found below or by visiting www.cascadescasino.ca.
