The Irv Feldman Texas Hold ‘Em Tournament presented by The CHEST Foundation in partnership with Select Rehabilitation, returned to Chevy Chase Country Club for their 7th annual event on Saturday, March 7, 2020.
There were over 460 guests in attendance with 260+ poker players and 200+ casino guests for this record breaking night. After filling up at the buffet, guests were able to stop by the Tito’s Vodka tasting table where they learned how to make a killer Tito’s Moscow Mule. Guests also enjoyed options from the open bar featuring Tito’s Vodka cocktails, Miller Lite, Peroni and Coors Light before making their way to the silent auction section featuring over 45 fabulous prizes, like hotel stays, golf outings, signed memorabilia and more!
The night kicked off with a live presentation featuring Blackhawks National Anthem Singer Jim Cornelison, who brought plenty of excitement and then, the cards were shuffled and the games began!
The guests kept the casino alive with excitement at the blackjack, roulette, and craps tables before they cashed out their casino chips for raffle tickets hoping to win big. New this year, the ‘Luck of the Draw’ raffle featured three prizes; two-night stay at the Ritz-Carlton Presidential Suite and trips to Puerto Rico and the Bahamas. Also new this year was an auction for the final table which sold for $1,500. At the end of the night, Jason Trelak was the last one sitting and was crowned champion!
