More on the Charity Poker Tournament Proceeds
This ACR poker tourney is raising proceeds for the Feeding America charity. The latter is especially important right now when considering that the coronavirus is causing bigger food shortages than normal.
Affleck is part of a group that’s already raised $1 million for the cause. He’s passionate about improving this amount through the ACR event.
“Excited to announce that I have joined forces with @FeedingAmerica, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, to raise money for folks who need it most,” he stated through Instagram.
Who Are the Celebrity Poker Players?
As mentioned before, Affleck, Sandler, and Brady are among those who’ll take the cyber felt on April 11. However, plenty of other celebrities will join the mix too.
Tobey Maguire, Sarah Silverman, Jon Hamm, Matt Damon, and Adam Levins are among those who’ll log onto ACR for a good cause.
These A-listers are sure to help ACR generate funds for Feeding America. It’ll also no doubt draw more traffic and railbirds to Americas Cardroom.
The latter has been running for nearly a decade and a half. It operates as an offshore online poker site that serves many unregulated states throughout the US.
