LINTHICUM, Md. Oct. 12, 2016NFM Lending is pleased to announce its sponsorship of the third annual St. Jude  Against All Odds celebrity poker tournament at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 5 at The Joint inside the Hard Rock Casino and Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.

There will be a red carpet welcome, cocktail reception, dinner, and both live and silent auctions. Guests will have the opportunity to play poker and the option to play against celebrity poker players.

The event benefits St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, which is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. In fact, treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since it opened in 1962. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent and won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.

“It’s an honor for NFM to support this event,” said David Silverman, CEO of NFM Lending. “It’s one of the most professionally done charity events you could ever attend, and when you combine it with one of the finest organizations in the country, why wouldn’t you want to be involved? Event chair Daniel Negreanu does such an amazing job recruiting top talent and inspiring community support with his team of volunteers, so I am confident we will break last year’s previous fundraising efforts to help find cures and save children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases.”

NFM Lending supports many local charities and nonprofits through sponsorship and volunteer work. These include Ronald McDonald House of Baltimore, the Maryland SPCA, the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, and the American Diabetes Association, to name a few. NFM also helps support Veterans and military members by holding an annual Support Our Troops Drive, where dozens of care packages are sent to troops overseas, as well as running the NFM Salute initiative, where Veterans and military members are honored for their service.
