Commercial Real Estate Poker Invitational

All-in For Charity

The 4th annual Commercial Real Estate Poker Invitational (Poker Invitational) is a charity event of high stakes fun, entertainment, and friendly competition. This year, we honour Lee Hester, a cherished industry colleague lost to cancer in 2018. Lee’s infectious spirit brought people together and guaranteed a good time for all. His wish was to never be forgotten and, tonight, we’ll make sure of it.

The Event

Appealing to those in commercial real estate and associated industries in Metro Vancouver, this event follows a wildly successful 3rd invitational in May of 2023. The event will unquestionably continue its legacy of giving, excitement, and fun. The evening kicks off with a cocktail reception in the Grand Paradox Hotel Ballroom, followed by a night of Texas Hold’em poker played in an authentic Monte Carlo style atmosphere. Players compete for cash prizes and ultimate bragging rights. Exciting prizes will be raffled off to all attendees.

Royal Columbian Hospital’s lab is leading the charge in cancer diagnosis as BC’s busiest hub. Given the province’s reliance on the Columbian for cancer support, we must continue to innovate by acquiring a Genexus Purification System (GPS) to use with the sequencing analyzer. This GPS is a cutting-edge, fully automated machine that revolutionizes cancer molecular characterization.
We are setting a new standard for cancer care across the region and the province.
