Tournament History

Eleven years ago, EJ Levy’s and Eden Lopez’s vision of a charity poker tournament to raise money for MS research and programs came to fruition. Over the years, hundreds of individuals and corporations have come out to play poker and support this cause. In the tournament’s first 11 years, we have raised nearly $7.8 million dollars to help people living with MS.
