What is Poker Run & Cooler by the Lake?

Poker Run is a part of our Leukemia Cup Series. As a participant, enjoy a full day of on-the-water activities and a rockin' after party hosted in partnership with Chicago Corinthian Yacht Club! Power boat owners and their guests spend a day on the water, traveling from harbor to harbor collecting playing cards at each to build the best hand. After a pit-stop at Columbia Yacht Club for the happiest happy hour along Lake Michigan, participants return to Montrose Harbor to collect their last card and celebrate for a cause at Cooler by the Lake!

Cooler by the Lake is the official after party with food, open-pour drinks, live music and a silent auction, all set against the beautiful Chicago skyline on the lawn at Corinthian Yacht Club.
