The mission of the
is to help talented students pursue careers in the
performing and creative arts through scholarship
The Liberace Foundation for the Performing and Creative Arts was founded in 1976. In the first year after its creation, The Foundation sponsored a series of four concerts to benefit the University of Nevada at Las Vegas Music Department Scholarship Fund. The success of this early venture underscored the importance of establishing and maintaining a regular funding program in support of the country's thousands of promising creative artists.
Who Are They?
"WHO ARE THEY" was the question of the day this past Tuesday when the nine final table participants were announced at the 2007 WSOP $10,000 buy-in main event.
As was the norm for all of the 2000’s most of the players at the main event final tale were unknown to the poker world, but world was the definitive word, as this year’s future millionaires (all final table gladiators were guaranteed at least a million dollars US!) were from all over the globe, Two were from the UK, a player from Russia made the finals, one from Canada by way of Vietnam and a final table 1st; the continent of
Africa was represented.
