UB.com Announces Second Sundays -- a Series of $10 Fundraisers for National Charities

Poker Players Compete for Cash, UB Swag, Entries to UB.com Events, and Exciting Sponsored Prizes to Benefit National Charities

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - March 23, 2010) -  UB.com is introducing "Second Sundays," a new series of UB.com online fundraisers benefiting national charities. The series will be the first of its kind, with regularly scheduled monthly events that started on Sunday, March 14th, at 1PM ET, and will continue every second Sunday through June. The cost to play and compete for cash prizes, UB swag, entries to popular UB.com events, and exciting Rockwell Time and Monster JAMZ products is $10.

Each event includes a second-chance entry to a bonus freeroll, for a chance at another $1,025 in various UB.com tournament entries, taking place the following day for those participants that don't qualify for Second Sunday tournament prizes. 

UB.com Pro Annie Duke says about the new series, "We're struggling with a difficult economy. Charitable organizations are experiencing a drastic decline in donations. Most people, though sympathetic to charitable causes, have simply cut back on personal expenditures."

Notably excited about the fall fundraiser program, Duke believes UB.com has developed a simple solution. "This is not about individuals each making large donations. It's about a large number of people collectively donating small amounts of money in order to make a difference."

"UB and Absolute are global communities," she adds. "It's members have been very generous and supportive of charitable efforts in the past. This grassroots movement could mobilize more people to join our community in order to effectively make a difference."

The Spring line up of UB.com Second Sunday fundraisers will run consecutively on AbsolutePoker.com. Beneficiaries include the Sharon Osbourne Colon Cancer Program at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Road 2 Recovery's Injured Riders Fund, and the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.
