Cannes is of course most famous for its international film festival, when the stars of the world migrate to the beautiful seaside city, and frolic in the sun. What better time or place therefore, for a charity poker event, and who on earth would not want to be a part of that!

Expected to be participating in the event which will be held on May 19th are actors and poker enthusiasts Ben Affleck and Matt Damon. The proceeds from the tournament are to benefit Not on Our Watch, a charity for children in Darfur, and One Voice for Freedom, who work towards the abolishment of slavery from around the globe.  A good cause and good company doesn't make a buy-in however, so if you are less well off than either of those two gentlemen, you might be interested in the package Pacific Poker is offering to one of its members. The package includes flights for the winner of the package and a friend to Cannes, accommodation in a top class hotel for 3 nights, and of course most importantly your seat at the table which could leave you with a $250,000 beach house in South Africa!

May 9th will see a qualifier run through the Pacific Poker site, with a buy-in of 1,200 Frequent Player Points that must have been earned between March 1st and May 5th. If you don't have the points for the qualifier, however, you can enter a satellite for the qualifier which will run on May 7th with a $150 + $10 buy in. Those who finish in the top 3 slots of the satellite will get a seat at the qualifier, and the winner of the qualifier will get the package.
