About Kapstream Poker Night 2017

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".

- James Bloom, Director, Investment Strategy, Kapstream Capital.



About Cure Cancer Australia

Cure Cancer Australia is dedicated to funding crucial cancer research from Australia’s brightest emerging minds. We believe early-career researchers who offer new ideas and challenging perspectives are the key to advancing the fight against ALL types of cancer.
The funding landscape for early-career researchers is extremely competitive. Cure Cancer Australia provides the vital early-career funding that our emerging research innovators so desperately need. Without investment in their potentially life-saving research, there won't be a future pipeline for Australian cancer research.
To date, Cure Cancer Australia has invested over $27.5 million to support more than 300 scientists and provide close to 500 research grants. Many of our alumni are now amongst the leaders in cancer research both in Australia and around the world.
We won't cure cancer without research and we cannot cure cancer without you. Help us to make this the last generation to die from cancer.
