PokerStars Hosts Memorial Tourney for Virginia Tech Victims

Share this
This Saturday, 28 April 2007 at 3:00pm eastern U.S. time, PokerStars will host a tournament to raise money for the Hokie Spirit Memorial Fund. PokerStars has a history of fund-raising tournaments in the wake of tragic events, with previous tournaments benefiting tsunami victims, Katrina survivors and cancer research. $19.99 from each $20 tournament entry will go to the fund, and PokerStars will match all entry fees into the tournament with a donation as well.

The Hokie Spirit Memorial Fund was established by Virginia Tech in the wake of last week's murder of more than 30 students and professors to cover expenses including, but not limited to: grief counseling, memorials, communication expenses, comfort expenses, and incidental needs of those affected by the tragedy. For those wishing to contribute directly to the Fund, information on doing so is available on the Virginia Tech website

The tournament is listed under the Tourney/Special tab on PokerStars, under the name Hokie Spirit Memorial Fund - $20 fundraiser. $0.01 from each entry will go toward the tournament's prize pool. The remaining $19.99 from each entry will be matched by PokerStars and then sent to the Fund. Registration is open now.
