Microgaming Poker Network To Run Online Charity Poker Tournament For Disaster Relief
ISLE OF MAN – The Microgaming Poker Network powered by Microgaming (www.microgaming.com) encourages poker players to join the network in donating money to aid the victims of the Haiti earthquake.
On 22 January, the Microgaming Poker Network will run a €10+€10 buy-in tournament, with the €10 fee being entirely donated to the Haitian Health Foundation, who will use the funds for disaster relief in Haiti. The Microgaming Poker Network will match all funds raised from the tournament.
Players can register for the tournament from any operator on the Microgaming Poker Network. The tournament will commence on 22 January 2010 at 6:30PM GMT.
Haitian Health Foundation has been actively assisting the poorest nation in the Western hemisphere since 1985. Because of their long presence in Haiti, they have the infrastructure in place to utilize monetary donations in the most efficient ways possible. Over 92% of funds collected by Haitian Health Foundation go directly towards services for the poor, so players can be assured that donations generated from the tournament will be used to maximum benefit.
Donations can be made directly to Haitian Health Foundation at www.HaitianHealthFoundation.org.
