While talking about the highlighted tournament, Moreira de Melo expressed her opinion on charity events and invited all active members to use this great opportunity and become a part of the landmark in Play Money history, as Right To Play successfullly raised money for many good causes and awe-inspiring projects. The two companies formed a partnership in 2014 and already managed to collect over $1.5 million through various donations.
