Kapstream will host its 10th annual charity night on Thursday 3rd August 2017.
The Kapstream charity night is a fun and friendly poker competition which, over the past nine years has raised over $435,000 in support and vital awareness for worthwhile charities. We hope to reach and exceed the $500,000 mark in 2017.
The event proceedings will go to two very worthwhile causes: Cure Cancer Australia and Bear Cottage.
From the event held last year and in partnership with KangaNews, Kapstream was able to fund a full research grant with Cure Cancer Australia.
The researcher funded for 2017 was A/Prof Steven Lane who is researching blood cancer.
"Kapstream was initially drawn to the intense research focus and non-discriminatory approach taken by Cure Cancer Australia in its goal of supporting original research into any and all cancers. We're honoured to see our donation put to such fundamentally important use through this grant to A/Prof Steven Lane to support his work into blood cancer".
