Chicago Gateway Green’s wildly popular annual Texas Hold’Em Poker Tournament and Casino Night combines great entertainment, refreshments, and friendly competition.
Gaming for Green raises funds for Chicago Gateway Green’s Tree Partnership Program, which is a large-scale volunteer tree planting initiative transforming vacant land across Chicago’s neighborhoods into tree-filled green spaces, improving Chicago’s neighborhoods’ environmental health, beauty, and livability.
This year's event will be emcee'd by Roe Conn & Richard Roeper of the Roe & Roeper Show on WLS 890AM who will bring a fun atmosphere to a friendly poker competition with the involvement of numerous sponsors and supporters.
Don't Miss the McGrath Lexus $30,000 Challenge! McGrath Lexus of Chicago along with IMPACT365 have created an amazing contest that will take place at the event. The top 5 poker chip leaders after the 4th blind level will all have a chance to win $30,000. The 5 players with the most chips will head to the stage, pick 5 random envelopes numbered 1 to 52 (representing the 52 cards in a deck) and IF one of the 5 players ends up with a "four-of-a-kind" poker hand or better, they will win the cash!
Additional Gaming: Poker not your thing? Event guests can enjoy a variety of other charitable gaming. Try your luck and skill at roulette, craps, and blackjack.
Additional Entertainment, Fine Food & Cocktails: No evening would be complete without the fabulous music, food, and beverage. Enjoy live music on the outdoor patio while sipping complimentary cocktails and smoking cigars if you favor them. Delight in Galleria Marchetti's famous Italian specialties with your ticket.
