The philanthropic side of the global poker community needs no introduction. Several players and organizations have made magnanimous contributions towards various causes. One such company is The Charity Series of Poker (CSOP) a non-profit organization that was established in 2014 to organize and promote charity poker tournaments that raise money and awareness for worthy charities and causes. They also work as a great platform for individual poker players and celebrities to give back to their communities in a way that makes a difference.
The CSOP has just announced its next big fundraiser scheduled for the 8th of December this year. The event will benefit the Vegas Golden Knights foundation, an organization that is associated with the NHL’s Vegas Golden Knights team that supports the local Vegas community.
The event will screen the Golden Knights and Los Angeles Kings game followed by the poker tournament that will commence at 4.30. Negreanu, John Cynn, Jeff Madsen, Matt Savage, Lexy Gavin, Ryan Leng and Jo Kim are amongst a few who’ve confirmed their attendance.
The tournament has set a buy-in of $300; the winner will earn a seat worth $10000 for the 2019 WSOP Main event and what’s more a chance to play against some of the best poker players for a charitable cause!
