October is international Breast Cancer awareness month (Pink October)
Breast cancer is a life threatening disease that affects both men and women. More people than ever are surviving, but the reality is, it’s still a very common disease which may require long term treatment and can hugely affect someone’s life.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month, is a worldwide annual campaign involving thousands of organisations, to highlight the importance of breast awareness, education and research. They have created “Pink October” which brings women together to share their stories and to better support each other.
partypoker and their newest brand, partypoker Ladies, are proud to support ‘Pink October’ for Breast Cancer Awareness, and have designed a special event which will take place on Monday 30th October, 7pm BST time.
The one day event will have a $22+$0 buy-in with unlimited re-entries and late registration available until the end of level 10. It will also have a 6 minute clock until end of level 10, then 12 minutes thereafter and a 30K starting stack. The tournament will be open to all, male and female.
partypoker will be matching the total prize pool and donating equally to two charities: Cancer research UK & Grupo Love in Brazil.
Official No.1 female poker player in the world (partypoker sponsored pro) Kristen Bicknell is a confirmed presence at the online felt and has said she will donate any winnings from this event to the two charities.
Team partypoker’s Natalia Breviglieri will also take part in the event. “Really excited to be taking part in this event! It’s for a great cause & I’ll be donating any of my winnings to the Charities!” she has stated.
