14th Annual Chance for Life

March 9, 2019 - 6:30pm
Chance for Life was created in 2005 in honor of Kennedy Snyder, who was diagnosed with an aggressive spinal cord tumor at age 2. What began as a small get-together has become DC's best charity event experience - featuring a Texas Hold'Em style poker tournament, celebrity chef tasting, and Vegas-style after party. Chance for Life is proud to donate 100% of net proceeds benefit pediatric cancer research, without overhead costs and administrative fees.

What: A daytime poker tournament at MGM National Harbor precedes a mega tasting event curated by 2019 culinary chair Casey Patten. Expect bites from Gerald Addison and Chris Morgan(Compass Rose and Maydan), Kyle Bailey (The Salt Line), Erik Bruner-Yang (Brothers and Sisters and Spoken English), Gina Chersevani (Buffalo & Bergen), Adam Greenberg (Coconut Club), Haidar Karoum (Chloe), and more.

Details: The evening (starting at 6:30pm) includes auction items like MGM vacations and a Vegas-style afterparty with a surprise musical guest; last year it was Blues Traveler. All net proceeds fund pediatric cancer research at Children’s National Health System and Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. Get tickets here or donate here.
