Interactive Studio Management (ISM) will host its third annual Invitational Charity Poker Tournament alongside the 2009 Game Developers Conference (GDC 2009), with all proceeds benefiting the Starlight Children’s Foundation.
Running from March 23rd to 27th, GDC 2009 will take place at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Registration for the poker tournament will be open to all GDC attendees.
ISM plans to hold the charity event on March 24th at the nearby Marriott Hotel, and will allow a limited number of players to compete in Texas Hold 'Em for prizes and trophies. A spectators bar and video game room will also be available during the tournament.
Last year's ISM Invitational Charity Poker Tournament gathered over 160 players, spectators, and participating video game companies to raise more than $24,000 for the foundation.
For more than 25 years, the Starlight Children’s Foundation has been committed to helping seriously ill children and their families cope with their pain, fear and isolation through entertainment, education and family activities.
