Event Summary:

Chance for Life is Washington area’s premiere Poker Tournament, Wine & Chef’s Tasting, and After Party. It is a raucous, dynamic experience that is unlike any other in the Washington area. Our mission is to fight against pediatric cancer so that no children or family will ever have to experience having a child affected by cancer. 100% of all proceeds raised through Chance for Life are donated to directly fund cancer research through Children’s National Hospital Center and Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.

 

Brad Nierenberg became the godfather to a close friend’s daughter, Kennedy Snyder, 16 years ago. Just two years later, she was diagnosed with an aggressive spinal cord tumor. After a successful fight to eradicate the tumor, it returned almost to its original size in less than three months. Kennedy’s indomitable spirit - bravery, exuberance, and persistence - is the inspiration that created Chance for Life.  

 

Chance for Life, taking place on April 1, is going to be the FIRST charity event held at MGM National Harbor. MGM approached CFL after attending as a sponsor last year and it was selected as the logical venue to allow CFL To grow to a $1M+ night event.

 

100% of all proceeds raised through CFL are donated to directly fund cancer research through Children’s National Hospital Center and Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. Since being founded 12 years ago, Chance for Life has raised over two million dollars for pediatric cancer research (they grossed $410,000 in 2016 alone)!

LiveNation Performing Artist at the After Party (to be announced in the coming weeks)

600 person poker tournament (WJFK's Sports Junkies will be playing)

Big name sponsors including Accenture, DARCARS, United Bank, Comcast Sportsnet, Taylor Gourmet, Enterprise, etc.
