The entire $25 tournament fee will be given as a charitable contribution to the Starlight Children's Foundation Canada.


The Starlight Children’s Foundation Canada is a charitable organization dedicated to bringing laughter, joy and hope back into the lives of children with serious illnesses. For over 20 years, their in-hospital entertainment therapy and out-of-hospital fun family adventure programs have brought smiles to children when they need it most.


The event is a $135 + $25 No Limit Hold'em tournament with a massive $100,000 Guaranteed Prize Pool! It features 4 "Day 1" starting flights at 11am and 7pm on January 29th and 30th. And, for the players who qualify by surviving any Day 1, Day 2 of the tournament will be held on January 31st. The final Day 3 will be held on Monday February 1st at 7pm.


The All-Stars for Starlight event aims to build on the success of the Strike Out Cancer Charity Event at the end of August. That event saw 1,186 players contribute just under $30,000 for the Jodi Taiger Lazarus Fund for Hereditary Breast Cancer Research.
