Teen inspires DC’s Largest Poker Tourney

Kennedy Snyder has spent 11 of her 13 years fighting spinal cord cancer. Her undeniable spirit and optimism has helped her in the fight and inspired what has become the biggest charity poker tournament in Washington.

The 10th Annual Chance for Life Poker Tournament will be held February 21, 2015. Over the last 9 years the event has raised more than $1 million dollars in the fight against pediatric spinal cord cancer.
The events of the day include a silent auction, wine tasting and after party. The Chance for Life poker tournament champion will win a seat at the World Series of Poker tournament in Las Vegas. NBC4’s Doug Kammerer, Jim Vance, and Veronica Johnson have also been big supporters of the event.

A chance to live

Life. It’s something so many of us take for granted. It’s hard to think it’s something that others spend every day fighting for. Well it was awesome to see that so many in our community continue to give those people, specifically children. Hundreds came together to help give the chance to live on. At Chance for Life you really get to see goodness of our area at work. It was a wonderful event inspired by beautiful Kennedy Snyder. She is now 12 and still working everyday to beat pediatric spinal cord cancer. Chance for Life has benefited her fight and other kids like her by donating hundreds of thousands to research. Thank you to everyone who came out for a wonderful night of poker and dancing at the City Tavern Club to make a difference. It was great to have the support of my News4 colleagues too! Love ya’ll!
