for Kids



The 2017 Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and WPT Foundation™ All In for Kids Poker Tournament was a smashing success – thanks to generous supporters like you!

More than 300 people attended the unique annual event. Once again, poker legend Phil Hellmuth Jr. served as host for the tournament, which brings together celebrities, athletes and CHOP supporters for a fun evening of food, drinks and friendly rounds of poker in New York City.

The 2017 event raised more than $812,000 for pediatric brain tumor research at CHOP. Your support will make a significant difference in the lives of children around the world who are diagnosed with brain tumors. Thank you for making tomorrow’s breakthroughs possible!
