PokerStars and Prostate Cancer UK join forces
PokerStars has joined forces with leading men’s health charity Prostate Cancer UK for a special charity event called Lads Night In, which will take place on September 25, 2015.
The event isn’t a single tournament, but rather an effort to encourage men across the UK to “gather together in their own homes for bravado, banter and beers all in the name of charity.”
The idea is then the home game prize pool, or at least a portion of it, will be donated to Prostate Cancer UK, which helps men survive prostate cancer and enjoy a better quality of life. Interested parities can sign up online at the Lads Night In website, and everyone who does will receive a special Lads Night In pack, which includes a deck of cards donated by PokerStars.
One man already signed up is Team PokerStars Pro Jake Cody, who will be hosting his own VIP Lads Night In home game in London. What’s more, he’s offering the chance for five players to win a seat into the game. Free spins no deposit.

“Lads Night In is a really fun way to raise money and awareness for an amazing cause,” said Cody. “If you want to be in with a chance to win a VIP Lads Night In experience in London, including travel and accommodation, sign up to Lads Night In then tweet using #JCLadsNightIn explaining who your dream opponent(s) is and why. I’ll then pick my favorite, based upon the most meaningful, witty or creative!”
Regarding the initiative, Owen Sharp, Chief Executive at Prostate Cancer UK said: “Prostate cancer kills one man every hour. We’re doing everything we can to change this, but it’s a numbers game and we urgently need more help if we are going to reduce the number of lives being cut short by this disease. That’s why we are calling on as many people as possible to get involved, raise funds over a friendly game of poker, and help beat this silent killer once and for all.
