“There has been no commitment from the tournament organizers as to the amount of money to be donated to the Foundation; however, in my view, the amount is irrelevant compared to the value of the awareness these great bunch of guys are creating and bringing to the table. I am looking forward to the tournament and should I be so lucky to win a prize, it will be donated to the Foundation," said Guillermo Guzman, founder of WWIF.
