Entries to the tournament will be $55 with $10K guaranteed. Satellites will also run alongside.
To encourage as many women as possible to sign up for this special tournament every female player will be credited with a $55K ticket into another ACR tournament, making this charity tournament is a freeroll for them.
ACR Team Pro Katie Lindsay, with the support of ACR, will be donating $20K to the United Breast Cancer Foundation/leading breast cancer charity, matching the tournament prize pot.
During the tournament a livestream hosted by YouTuber and Influencer Nikki Limo will chat about the importance of checking your breasts and discussing their experiences. Reality TV star Trishelle Cannatella and Team Pro Ana Marquez are confirmed guests.
The funds donated will go towards supporting families and individuals dealing with breast cancer both through community service measures and targeted support like breast scanning and reconstructive surgery.
Speaking ahead of the charity tournament ACR Team Pro Katie Lindsay said: “I’m so happy to be able to support the United Breast Cancer Foundation thanks to the help of my friends and ACR. I love that they offer holistic approaches to healing and helping as many cancer survivors as possible.”

We are happy to support this tournament and think it will be a great event and are excited for people to have fun while raising money for an excellent cause.”
