Americas Card Room Raises $33,093 For Breast Cancer Research
"We know how important this cause is and how many people it affects, so creating tournaments in direct support of the breast cancer fight was a no-brainer," stated Americas Card Room spokesperson Michael Harris. "We'd especially like to thank all our players for choosing to play our special Breast Cancer Awareness tourneys. We couldn't have done it without you."
Throughout October, Americas Card Room held two daily Breast Cancer Awareness tournaments. A full 100% of the buy-ins, rebuys, and add-ons from each tourney was donated directly to a Breast Cancer Awareness campaign on Bithope.org, a cryptocurrency-based fundraising site.
The first half of the month included two daily rebuy/add-on tourneys. The second half of the month featured two daily Freebuy tournaments, which coincided with the currently running Freebuy Super Series.
Players simply had to look for the pink tournaments in the lobby, register, and play as normal. Americas Card Room took care of collecting the funds and making the donation to Bithope.org.
Americas Card Room furthered their philanthropic efforts towards Breast Cancer via their Live Cage Event in San Jose, Costa Rica this past October. The U.S. facing site flew down streamer and activist Vanessa Kade and pledged to donate 50% of her overall winnings from the event. The effort resulted in $5,652 being donated to Breast Cancer Awareness.
Harris notes that because the initiative was so successful, players can look forward to other poker tournaments earmarked for fundraising in the future.
