PCA Hosting AIDS Awareness Event
PokerStars is teaming with AIDS research foundation amfAR to host a charity tournament supporting AIDS awareness during next month's PokerStars Caribbean Adventure.
A number of high profile charity celebrities, sports stars and poker pros are expected to take part in the $5,250 event set for Jan. 8 at the Atlantis Resort and Casino on Paradise Island in the Bahamas.
Half the entire prize pool will go to amfAR to support the organization’s research and help raise HIV/AIDS awareness.
Already confirmed are former National Hockey League great Mats Sundin, tennis legend Boris Becker, French rugby star Sebastien Chabal and Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu.
“PokerStars is bringing a truly innovative and fulfilling cause to the PCA this year through their partnership with amfAR,” Negreanu said. “As a member of Team PokerStars Pro, I feel very lucky to be able to participate in, and contribute to, such a worthwhile cause in the name of AIDS research.”
PokerStars will be running qualifying satellites for the event over the next month.
In addition to the amfAR charity event, the 2010 PCA will host 50 tournaments Jan. 4-14 and participants will be encouraged to donate to amfAR.
“amfAR is grateful to PokerStars for providing this opportunity to bring AIDS awareness to a new audience and to raise critical funds for AIDS research,” said amfAR’s vice president and director of development Gregory Boroff.
