There are so many “If Onlys” when it comes to cancer and medical research and that is the overriding theme for the kick off of the first annual “If Only” Texas Hold’Em Poker Tournament. Presented by the Forum and City of Hope’s Future Hope Committee, this inspiring fundraiser has been set for Sunday, July 29, at the Forum in Inglewood, California. Doors open at 12 p.m. with the games beginning at 1 p.m. This luminary-filled event is being hosted by Shelli & Irving Azoff, Madison Square Garden and City of Hope, the nonprofit clinical research and treatment center for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases.
Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian West, Khloé Kardashian and Kendall Jenner will be in attendance, each hosting their own table. The Kardashians and Jenners have been long-time supporters of the City of Hope and its mission and were the first to jump on the opportunity to advocate for this worthy cause. In striving to bring a new level of awareness to the organization and help raise critical funds, parts of this event will be included in an upcoming Keeping Up with the Kardashians episode, which will air later this year.
Winners will receive unforgettable prizes, including front row tickets and VIP Experience for the upcoming Eagles and Fleetwood Mac concerts with the opportunity to come backstage and meet members of the band and take a photo, Callaway golf clubs customized at Callaway headquarters in Carlsbad, tickets to the iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas, Lorraine Schwartz Diamond Against Evil Eve Bracelet, and more.
