LAS VEGAS – “Jeopardy!” James Holzhauer and his wife, Melissa, will continue their support of homegrown nonprofit Project 150 by hosting a “Jeopardy!” Greatest of All Time watch party on Thursday, Jan. 9, at 8 p.m. Following the show, Holzhauer will participate in a question and answer session with Mark Shunock, who hosts Mondays Dark and is the in-arena host for the Vegas Golden Knights.
The watch party will take place at The Space, 3460 Cavaretta Court, Las Vegas, NV 89103. Tickets range from $75 for general admission to $100 for a VIP admission that includes the watch party and a meet and greet photo opportunity with Holzhauer.
Holzhauer won the “Jeopardy!” Tournament of Champions in November, and will compete against the quiz show’s two other biggest winners, Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter.
Holzhauer set the long-running TV show’s single-game record last April, winning more than $131,127. He won $2.46 million during his 32-game streak. His personality and aggressive betting style won fans as he racked up winnings far more quickly than Jennings, who won $2.52 million during 72 games in 2004. Rutter never cracked the top 10 in regular season play. He first appeared in 2000, when the show limited players to five consecutive games. But Rutter is the biggest overall money winner on an American game show, earning $4.68 million, mostly from tournaments.

About Project 150
Project 150 is a 501(c)3 nonprofit charitable organization, founded in December 2011 by local businessmen Don Purdue and Patrick Spargur. The two heard about 150 homeless high school students at Rancho High School in Las Vegas who were in need of support over the Christmas break. Since that time, Project 150 has expanded and now serves more than 6,300 registered and non-registered homeless, displaced and disadvantaged high school students in more than 80 schools in Nevada. Project 150 provides these students with food, clothing, school supplies, sports equipment, shoes, college scholarships, workforce readiness, and other needs so they can continue school and be successful in life.
