UltimateBet hosts weekend of Ante Up For Africa tournaments in bid to beat last year's donation of $700,000 to support humanitarian efforts in Darfur.
Miami, FL (PRWEB) June 20, 2008 — On Saturday, June 21st and Sunday, June 22nd, UltimateBet will show its support for Ante Up For Africa with a weekend of No Limit Texas Hold'em tournaments.
In addition to holding two days of tournaments where all fees are donated to Ante Up For Africa, UltimateBet is also auctioning off a number of sought after items on their auction site. Players will be able to use their points to bid on such items as private poker lessons with Annie Duke, Scott Ian (Anthrax) autographed CDs and more. Knowing that they are not only bidding on some great items and life experiences, players will get the satisfaction of knowing that they are contributing to this worthy cause as well.
"We all know poker is about making money but this is a great chance to throw in a little charity with the chips" stated a UB spokesperson. "We hope to assist in beating last year's total donations and are calling on all our players to dig deep for this very worthy cause."
Proceeds from all donations provide aid and assistance to the survivors of the crisis in Darfur, Sudan and support activism dedicated to resolving this crisis
