Featured Beneficiary: Food Allergy Research

Allergies are among the most common medical problems in America. In fact, 15 million Americans have food allergies, and roughly two kids in every school classroom are at risk for a life-threatening allergic episode. But pioneering researchers at CHOP are rewriting the book on allergy. CHOP is the No. 1 ranked children’s hospital in the U.S. and a global leader in understanding and treating allergies.

 

About the Host

 
 
PHIL HELLMUTH JR., POKER LEGEND

Phil Hellmuth Jr. is the greatest poker player to ever play the game. In 1989, at 24, he was the youngest person to ever win the World Series of Poker — a record that stood for 19 years. Hellmuth’s last win was his 13th career WSOP title.

Known as the “Poker Brat” for his always colorful, competitive and controversial personality, Hellmuth has won Player of the Year honors, the NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship, the European Poker Championship and more than 50 other major tournament titles. In 2007, he was elected to the Poker Hall of Fame.

He is one of the most recognizable faces on television, with frequent appearances not only as a poker player, but as a host on ESPN, Bravo and NBC, as well as a competing coach against Annie Duke on Fox Sports Network’s Best Damn Poker Show.

This is his seventh time as the “All In” for Kids Poker Tournament host.
