Chance for Life

Equally successful as in years past, this year’s Chance for Life events dealt a ‘full house’ to the City Tavern Club in Georgetown. To raise money for pediatic spinal chord cancer research, under the inspiration of 7 1/2 year old Kennedy Snyder, attendees played in poker tournaments, participated in wine tastings, and partied (did you really think this wouldn’t be a part of the event??) for the cause.

A female finally won the poker tournament, now in its third year, and will take a gamble with her winnings – a $10,000 World Series of Poker Tour ticket. Friend and apparent fellow Matrix fan, Michael Saylor (it’s a joke – he was wearing a long leather jacket and shades) was the only acquaintance of mine skilled enough to make it to the final table.
