What is the purpose of this event?

Poker with a Purpose allows LEAD to raise funds for our programming and life changing summer opportuntities. LEAD serves greater than 470 middle school students.

Some of our eldest students will travel to Teton Science Schools in Jackson, Wyoming. This will be the first time that many of our student LEADers will travel outside of the state, fly on an airplane, or experience the great outdoors. These summer experiences allow our students to extend and apply their character development lessons.

Come! Support LEAD and help us make an impact in the lives of our youth.


I do not know how to play poker, should I still come?

Of course! We'd love to see you. There will be drinks, dinner, silent auction, coveted raffles, merriment and fellowship. Come on out!


Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Guests must be 23 years of age or older to enter Kirby Icehouse.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There is ample parking available in both parking lots that surround the venue.

What do I bring to the event?
