Interxion, a leading European operator of carrier-neutral data centres, today announced its sponsorship of the annual Futures For Kids Poker Night event (http://www.futuresforkids.org.uk/events), taking place at The London Capital Club on 17th September 2009.
Futures For Kids, a charity set up last year by representatives from the futures and options industry, is holding its second annual Poker Night. Last year’s event was a huge success, with nearly 150 people coming together for competitive games of poker, and this year almost 200 players are expected to take to the tables to raise money for the organisation’s three chosen charities – Demelza House, EveryChild and HopeHIV.
Demelza House is a children’s residential hospice in Kent, East Sussex and South London providing a wide range of services to life-limited children. EveryChild is committed to protecting the rights of the world’s most vulnerable and marginalized children, and HOPEHIV seeks to offer children in Sub-Saharan Africa who have been affected or infected by HIV/AIDS the love, protection and support they need to build foundations of hope for the future within their communities.
“It’s a great honour to be able to support such a good cause,” said Greg McCulloch, Interxion UK MD. “Over the past 12 months we have developed a range of new products and services for the finance sector, especially the trading community, and it’s a real pleasure to be involved in a marketing sponsorship which can also make a difference to children’s lives.”
