PartyPoker will host WPT Shooting Stars event with $500 000 GTD
PartyPoker will host a charity tournament called Shooting Stars as part of the WPT World Online Championships.

This year the event will be carried out online, but the bottom line remains the same – most of the funds raised at the tournament will be sent to charity.
The event with a $500 000 guarantee will take place on July 29-30, and during it, a minimum of $50 000 will be raised for a charity fund under the name 1 Day Sooner, which is developing a COVID-19 vaccine. Buy-in of the event equals to $1 100, and $100 of this amount is rake, taken for charity. If the tournament is held with an overlay, the organizers will add the missing amount to send at least 50 thousand dollars to the mentioned fund.
