On Saturday, May 20, poker players came together at Borgata to support a worthy cause: the “Leveling the Field for All Kids” Charity Poker Tournament. Proceeds from the event supported ISF, Inc., a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide skilled therapeutic services that maximize a child’s capacity to play sports and recreational activities.
The tournament was sponsored by Fund Rounders, a non-profit organization dedicated to actualizing altruism in America and abroad. According to the organization’s mission statement, “By creating unique and cost-effective fundraising campaigns, we generate funding and widespread awareness for causes that we believe in…. We aim to bring publicity and additional resources to the people who give their time and skills, working tirelessly in their respective areas of philanthropy.”
2003 WSOP Champion Chris Moneymaker was hand at the tournament, and together with the other players, they raised over $800 for ISF, Inc. These funds will buy 40 specialized classes of sports instruction and physical training activities for ISF families.
“Every player who participated said that they really enjoyed being a part of our tournament,” said Fund Rounders founder Tim McArthur. “Every player learned about ISF and Fund Rounders, had a good time, played with a World Champ, and felt good about the fact that made a contribution to a great cause.”
