2015 Memorial Poker Tournament


Thanks to our sponsors and players dedication, we successfully raised almost $80,000 in funds for the 2015 Chad Brown Memorial Tournament. It is our greatest desire to have Chad’s legacy live on and we hope to see you all at the 3rd annual event. We are so pleased that TJ Martell has dedicated these funds specifically to sarcoma research.

The total raised in Chad’s name for the TJ Martell Foundation is $151,000. Let’s make this number climb! You can donate directly from the TJ Martell page or support this cause by attending and spreading the word for next year’s event. Check out the gallery page to see all the fun!

The media was very good to us this year. Click the links to read all about it!
