PokerStars donates over $30K to Raising for Effective Giving
10 Jan 2018
REG employs a cause-neutral reasoning in its philanthropy to ensure that donations make the biggest positive impact. It also empowers donors to make better giving choices by providing advice on how to help the causes that tackle the greatest sources of suffering.
"We are delighted to work with PokerStars again, organising another event where a donation is made to REG," said Team PokerStars Pro Igor Kurganov, who played in the tournament. "As we start the New Year, we would also like to thank all those who have supported our charity, taking part in events and making donations."
In 2017, PokerStars partnered with REG and donated fees from the Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) and World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) High Roller tournaments, raising in excess of $230,000.
