The Chiefs of Staff Charity Poker Tournament welcomes poker enthusiasts across the spectrum including Members of Congress, Chiefs of Staff, poker pros, and friends of the Foundation for an evening of bluffs and blinds, all in the name of charity to raise vital funds and awareness for the Foundation.

This year’s tournament takes place at YOTEL DC in the heart of Capitol Hill.

Not a poker player? Not a problem. The event will feature plenty of other games, activities, and opportunities to mingle for those who are just looking to enjoy the festivities and support Congress’ only charity.
