Update: This event has been cancelled.

Jason D'Aloia is running a charity poker tournament that will have Mariano Rivera in attendance. Mo will be playing at every table, so everyone who plays will be able to play with him a bit. With the top prize being a 50 inch TV, the money raised will go to St. Marks School.

He will not be signing anything at the event, though. Any items brought won't be allowed in. The event will be at TJ's Restaurant on 223/225 Westchester Avenue in Port Chester, NY on January 26. 4:30 PM is dinner and registration with play beginning at 6:30 PM. Only 100 players will be allowed. To get a spot or if you have any questions, you can go to TJ's or call (203) 570-0723.

From the New York Daily News:

It's called the World Police & Fire Games, with 18,000 athletes from law enforcement and fire services from 70 countries descending on New York City from Aug. 26 to Sept. 5, 2011, for a 10-day battle of the badges involving thousands of events in 65 categories, including 40 Olympic sports like boxing, wrestling, volleyball, swimming, golf and baseball, in venues across all five boroughs.

There will be a fund-raiser Thursday, at the Jacob Javits Convention Center, and although the games won't be held until 2011, the clock already is ticking loudly on an event this massive.

Tickets are $500 and you can check out their site for more.
