Giving What We Can: Penn says
Join Giving What We Can: Penn on April 3rd in Amado Recital Hall (Irvine auditorium) for our first annual charity poker tournament.

Please note the following changes to the event: Rebuys will no longer be allowed. Everything else in the game will remain the same for players. However, organizational changes are as follows: 100% of the proceeds from each ticket go to Charity and gifts to the top finishers of the tournaments will be made by donors. The basic ticket is $25 dollar to enter the event. The event includes a poker tournament and dinner provided by Manakeesh. The $100 dollar ticket purchases a VIP experience. This includes a poker tournament with a dealer and table-service for snacks, drinks (non-alcoholic) and dinner and VIP gifts.

Please contact Giving What We Can: Penn if you have any questions about the tournament structure. Additionally food and drinks will be provided thanks to our sponsors Manakeesh Cafe and Bakery, and Graduate and Professional Student Assembly (GAPSA)

The charities have been selected by members of Raising for Effective Giving (a group of Effective Altruist Poker Players). They are Deworm the World Initiative and GiveDirectly - both are fantastic charities recommended by GiveWell, with a ton of evidence behind them. We will be running a modified giving game so that each attendee will decide the charity they prefer their ticket sale money to go toward.

Who should attend this event? Anyone and everyone! If you like poker, you should come! If you like delectable food, you should come! If you enjoy learning about charities and making a positive impact on the world, please come! We hope you can make it, it promises to be an exciting evening.
