2021 Fade Out ALS Poker Tournament

On Thursday, October 7th, we invite everyone to help us FADE OUT ALS!

In poker lingo, to fade an event is to avoid it, and to fade a card is to avoid having that card be dealt from the deck into the community cards or into a player's hand. Join us for a virtual poker tournament to benefit The ALS Association Florida Chapter and give the ALS community the best hand to defeat this disease. This exciting night places all bets towards our mission – and welcomes all levels from never played to poker pros.
