Charity Poker Tournament for Slum Soccer - NL Holdem - All In to End Poverty

SF Rotaract will be putting on a Charity Poker Tournament, where 100% of the proceeds will benefit Slum Soccer.

Slum Soccer is a non profit which operates in India, and tackles the issue of homelessness (especially among children) through the medium of soccer. Soccer empowers participants by enhancing their fitness, social and communication skills, and reintegrates them within the community. Slum Soccer tournaments are organized in numerous states across India and the best players are selected to compete in the Homeless World Cup. The results have been tremendous in bringing a positive influence to the lives of nearly 70,000 men, women and children in over 63 districts all around India. The founder of this organization received the “2012 Reliance Real Hero Award’ from the Reliance Foundation, hosted by CNN and IBN. Among some of their partners, we find Tottenham Hotspur (English soccer team), the Homeless World Cup, National Children Football Association and many others.

The buy-in to this event will be $50, with re-buy's accepted through the first 90 minutes.

Proceeds: 100% of the proceeds go to Slum Soccer

    Not only does Slum Soccer promote development through the medium of football on a daily basis, they have been actively involved in helping the participants to get basic education and trying to put ‘drop outs’ back in to academics. The organization provides health, environmental and educational workshops which include hygiene, nutrition, AIDS awareness, skill training and gender equality. Also, to keep tabs on the physical and mental health of the participants, Slum Soccer organizes regular health check–ups by a general physician, pediatrician and psychologist. You can learn more at:

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
