The Malta Community Chest Fund is a charitable institution chaired by The President of Malta herself, Her Excellency Mary Louise Coleiro Preca. The aim of the institution is to help philanthropic institutions and more importantly, the individuals with different needs. The Kilimanjaro Group, this year known as KC9, consists of a group of 17 motivated individuals from different walks of life, coming together in an attempt to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in December to raise awareness and collect €70,000 to build a Kindergarten school in Dembidolo, Ethiopia. None of the two charitable organisations receive any funds from the Government and both organise a number of events throughout the year to raise funds.

The President of Malta had some great words of praise, not only towards the organisers of this charity event, but also towards the igaming community in general, reaffirming that thanks to initiatives like these, the many igaming expats are coming closer to the local community.

In conclusion, it is safe to assume that the charity poker tournament will become a custom charity event in the igaming calendar in Malta and we, as SiGMA, look forward to the next one! The SiGMA charity poker tournament was held thanks to the input from Jeremy Charles Grech, networking events manager, Jean Luc Micallef from Malta Poker Supplies, as well as Rickard Vikström from Internet Vikings.
