The organizations selected for the charity events are United Way of Chennai, Involve Education, Pad Squad, Manjhi Development Foundation, Bridge of Sports, Seva Kitchen, and Goonj.
We are happy to work with United Way of Chennai and join in the joy of giving. It is inspiring to see the good work that each of these organizations continues to drive and, with the generous support of our players, we are happy to do our small part. Daan Ustav inspires everyone to come together as one community to alleviate existing issues, and we will continue to find more opportunities to dedicate our-selves towards driving a change.Ankur Dewani
Charity tournaments are a great way to raise awareness and funds for relevant causes. I am so happy to be a part of PokerStars India’s initiative as several of these causes are very dear to me. As we enter the festive season, there is no better feeling than the ‘joy of giving’, and I look forward to seeing everyone join us in making this a huge success.Muska Sethi
