TAMPA, Fla. (July 1, 2015) – Throughout July, Seminole Hard Rock Tampa guests will have the opportunity to support the Ryan Nece Foundation.

To further support the charity, on Friday, July 31 from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., Hard Rock Cafe will be hosting a slot tournament, which is open to the public. The entry fee for the tournament will be $10 and 50 percent of those proceeds will be donated to the charity and 50 percent to the prize pool. Tickets can be purchased at the Rock Shop or upon entry of the event.

A red carpet ceremony featuring local community members will begin at 6 p.m and will precede with a concert in Hard Rock Cafe. Following the concert, the casino will present the Ryan Nece Foundation with a check totaling funds raised throughout the month.
