PKR.com goes One to One for charity
Poker was once again the vehicle for a fundraiser held by online poker room PKR.com over the weekend.
The One to One PKR.com charity poker tournament took place on Sunday with a host of celebrities including Jamie Oliver, Teddy Sheringham and WSOPE runner-up John Tabatabai.
All the proceeds from the event went to the One to One Children's Fund, which helps children in the United Kingdom, Middle East, Africa, Kosovo and India and Indonesia.
For this year's fundraiser the One to One Children's Fund returned to London's Sketch restaurant for a night of poker and backgammon. The annual event raised over £200,000 for children in need.
The £365 entry fee (which represents the cost of sponsoring one child for a year at £1 per day) included a champagne reception plus the buy-in to either the PKR.com sponsored poker tournament or the Omar Sharif Backgammon Tournament.
"It was a fantastic night for everyone involved and good to see so many people contributing towards such an important cause," said marketing manager Erika Schwartz.
The poker tournament was eventually won by Leticia White, daughter of famous chef Marco Pierre White. In addition to the trophy, she secured £4,000 for taking down first place, having picked up several celebrity bounties along the way.
