The launch party signified the official kickoff and countdown to the 2009 Maloof Money Cup- created by Joe Maloof, owner of the NBA’s Sacramento Kings and the Palms Casino Resort here in Las Vegas.

The event featured the Ante Up for the Skateboarding Poker Trounament, sponsored by monster Energy to benefit the Maloof Skateboard Assistance Foundation – a nonprofit organization that provides assistance to skateboarders who suffer injuries during contests. The MSAF organization was also created by Joe Maloof, when Jake Brown took a 50-foot fall at the 2007 X games and still went on to win the tournament.

Jake Brown was accompanied by fellow pro skaers and MMC competitors at Moon Nightclub for the official launch party. In attendance were Adam Dyet, Paul Rodriguesz (Last year’s Maloof Money Cup Street winner), Pierre Luc Gagnon, Lizard King, Bob Burnquist, Bryan Herman, Jake Duncombe, Braydon Szafranski, Brandon Biebel, Bobby Worrest, Billy Marks, Clarke Miyasaki, Corey Duffel, Heath Kirchart, Chris Gentry, Silas Baxter-Neal, Kurtis Colamonico, Adam Taylor, Rune Glifberg and Rodrigo TX.
