San Francisco 2015
All proceeds from the inaugural All-In to Fight Cancer Texas Hold'em fundraiser in San Francisco went to local causes, including:
Family House serves as a home-away-from-home for the families of children with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses, undergoing treatment at the Benioff Children's Hospital. Their tireless band of volunteers goes to extraordinary measures to provide physical comfort, emotional support and hope for over 2,000 families a year.
St. Baldrick's Foundation
St. Baldrick's Foundation is a volunteer-powered organization dedicated to funding the most promising childhood cancer research wherever it takes place. Worldwide, every 3 minutes a child is diagnosed with cancer and in the U.S., one in five will not survive. Each year, thousands of volunteers and donors in communities across the country support St. Baldrick's head-shaving events and "Do What You Want" fundraisers in an effort to raise funds and awareness to change these devastating statistics. Since 2005, St. Baldrick's has awarded 890 grants in 25 countries totaling more than $176 million. The continued success of St. Baldrick's efforts relies on volunteers and supporters, and has everything to do with one small but powerful word: You.
