Monster Energy Gives Back Program: DJ Ben Labee Memorial Poker Tournament
CORONA, Calif. (October 11, 2012) – The Monster Energy family recently lost one of its dearest friends when Monster DJ Ben Labee tragically passed away this past August. Born on October 16, 1980, Ben's time with us was too short and to honor his memory and help raise funds for his wife Shauna and beloved children, Alexandra (8) and Benjamin (6), the Monster Energy Gives Back Program will host a memorial poker tournament next weekend in Las Vegas on the eve of the Monster Energy Cup. The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino will be the host venue for this special event, scheduled from 9 p.m. - 12 a.m. PT on Friday, October 19.
Monster Energy would like to ask for the support of the entire motocross industry on this anticipated weekend in helping one of our closest colleagues, who was also an exceptional husband, father, and friend. Please share this flyer to anyone and everyone who might be interested in participating.

Donations to Ben's family can be made at any Wells Fargo Bank branch towards the Ben Labee Memorial Fund.
