Jamie Gold to Host Charity Poker Tournament

Jamie Gold to Host Charity Poker Tournament

Tuesday, 5 May 2009

WSOP Champion Jamie Gold smashed records when he triumphed over a monster field to take down a $12,000,000 first-place prize in the record-breaking 2006 WSOP Main Event. That's too much money for one man, though - best he do some charity work, eh?

Well, in Cannes on May 17, Jamie Gold is to host an event for the benefit of the Wilhelm & Karl Maybach Foundation and the Sunflower Children Foundation. It is set to take place at the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc, Cap d’Antibes.

The Wilhelm/Maybach foundation invests "in the select few who have the skill, the potential and the vision to help the many." The Sunflower charity provides support and healthcare to underprivileged children.
