Thank you for joining us for an unforgettable weekend in Las Vegas in support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital!

The weekend kicked off on Thursday, September 7, 2023 with the Welcome Reception at Resorts World, followed by a 144-person golf tournament at Revere Golf Club on Friday, September 8, where golfers enjoyed breakfast, a bloody mary bar and lunch. That evening, attendees savored the many delectable culinary options offered by Resorts World during the Tasting.

On Saturday, September 9, we returned to Resorts World for the Fashion Soirée, which featured cocktails, dinner, fashion and live entertainment, followed by The Daniel Negreanu Poker Tournament, a turbo live poker tournament that featured a chance to win a seat to the 2024 World Series of Poker Main Event.

All proceeds from this event benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, where families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — so they can focus on helping their child live.
