This spring, The Webster Group was honored to serve as the executive producer for one of DC’s premier charity events, Chance for Life. At its core, Chance for Life is a celebratory event of life, hope, and opportunity – committed to raising funds for pediatric cancer research. This year, the event raised 2.1M!
The all-day-and-night event at the MGM National Harbor starts with a poker tournament with over 700 amateur players – including some surprise guest players from our beloved Washington Capitals! Prizes are awarded for the top 20 winners, with a Grand Prize of a $10,000 seat at the World Series of Poker Tournament in Las Vegas. The event featured a full day of a top-shelf open bar, sprawling buffet food, cigar lounges, one of the region’s largest silent auctions, celebrity appearances, and loads of energy to bring the fight directly to childhood cancer.
As the sun goes down, the party kicked up. Guests entered the MGM theatre for the Chance for Life Taste Experience, hailed as one of the best events in DC. Over 2,000 attendees experience the best food and drink offerings from DC’s top chefs and mixologists. DJ Neekola kept the energy on tempo as everything from floral covered stilt-walkers to champagne aerialists entertained attendees.
The night continued with more dynamic entertainment and more chances to support cancer research. Guests danced the night away with an incredible line up of live performances and acrobatics, all of which were capped off by an exciting, surprise performance from Robin Thicke. Take a peek at the highlight reel for a glimpse of all the fun!
