ONE DROPTM, one of the world's leading organizations dedicated to sustainable access to safe water, has just announced that the Big One for One Drop (€1 million buy-in) will return this year as a part of a 5-day high stakes cash game tournament in Monaco.
Casino de-Monte-Carlo will host the event named 'Monte-Carlo One Drop Extravaganza' from October 13-17, 2016. The €1,000,000 Big One for One Drop Invitational will only be open to businessmen, philanthropic, and celebrity recreational players.
"I am pleased that Monaco has been chosen to host the 2016 edition of The Big One for One Drop, one of the most innovative charity events," said Prince Albert II of Monaco. "After only two editions, The Big One for One Drop has raised more than $10 million for water, a cause that I hold particularly dear. I wish an even greater success to the third edition of The Big One."
"From the beginning, we knew that The Big One for One Drop was a unique event," said One Drop Founder, Guy Laliberté. "This year, by shifting the focus to recreational players, we're looking to bring fun and innovation to charitable giving. We believe the events in Monaco will attract high net-worth individuals from across the globe to enjoy the game, the networking opportunities and the incredible VIP experiences only available in one of the world's most iconic settings."
