On Friday, January 27, 2012, the Chicago Bar Associationâ€™s Young Lawyers Section is hosting its Sixth Annual Texas Holdâ€™em Poker Tournament to Benefit the Chicago Bar Foundation. The tournament will take place at the Standard Club in downtown Chicago. All proceeds from the event will benefit the CBF, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, which provides funding for legal services to the neediest members of our community.
There will be great prizes awarded to those who make it to the final table, including airline tickets, a Florida vacation package, Cubs/Sox/Hawks/Bulls tickets, a Medinah golf outing, and top Chicago restaurant gift certificates, among others. The event includes a buffet dinner and open bar.
