Hold’Em for Life Real Estate Charity Poker Challenge Co-chairs Gavin Cheung, incoming President of CentreCourt Developments, and Bob Blazevski, President of Diamond Corp, led a record-breaking fundraising effort with more than $3.1 million raised for the Hold’em For Life Fellowship Program. 

Since 2006, the Hold’Em for Life organization has raised over $40 million to help fund several life-saving breast cancer and prostate cancer research initiatives that have led to over 50 published Hold’em For Life scientific research papers and scientific presentations.
