Ante Up For Africa, the charity founded by Annie Duke, Norman Epstein and Don Cheadle, has announced a partnership with 3D poker room PKR.com.
The charity was founded in 2006 and has raised upwards of $3m for partner organisations Refugees International, Enough Project and Darfur Peace and Development Organization. The new link up will see PKR's team of professional players wear Ante Up For Africa branding at big tournaments. The site will also sponsor celebrity players at the Ante Up For Africa tournament at this year's World Series Of Poker. Players at PKR can help the charity too by making cash donations using loyalty points, by giving a percentage of their tournament winnings or by playing in a series of special events.Simon Prodger, Marketing Director at PKR said; "Everyone in poker has the utmost admiration and respect for the work that Ante Up For Africa does year in, year out. It has proved itself to be an important part of the wider poker community, and it made perfect sense for us to link in our social responsibility programme."Ante Up for Africa co-founder Don Cheadle said "We're hopeful that our association with PKR and its loyal fan base will help to raise awareness and provide relief for people suffering in a devastating humanitarian crisis." Annie Duke said "Once again we are seeing the tremendous generosity of the poker community. We are so appreciative of PKR's support."
