Power Boat Poker Run

Power Boat Poker Run

Start your engines and boat to Create a World Without Cancer!

Dont' miss the 4th annual Leukemia Cup Poker Run and After-Party on Saturday, August 2, 2014.  The day begins with a Power Boat Poker Run visiting several harbors on Lake Michigan followed by a rockin' party with plentiful food, open poor drinks, live music and silent auction, all set against the beautiful Chicago skyline on the Corinthian Yacht Club lawn in Montrose Harbor.

Captains and their crew also fundraise throughout the summer for cancer research and patient support services for those suffering from leukemia, lymphoma and other blood cancer.

How can you get involved?

  • Be a captain: $100 registration fee includes a captain's goody bag, volunteer support at the harbors for power boaters, one (1) poker hand and one (1) ticket to the after-party.  Additional hands are $25.  You don't have to own a boat to be a captain.  Register now

  • Purchase after-party tickets: $80 until July 19; then it goes up to $95.  Purchase your tickets.

  • Make a donation to one of our captains.
