All In for Firefighters is a group of firefighters and community members dedicated to making a difference in Palm Beach County, Florida. On Sunday, January 28th, the Poker Room at Palm Beach Kennel Club hosted the 10th Annual Butch Smith Poker Classic. The Classic benefitted four local charities: Florida Firefighter Cancer Support Network - Florida Chapter, The Florida Firefighters Safety and Health Collaborative, Quantum House, and the Rooney's Golf Foundation, Inc.

"What started ten years ago as an event to benefit Captain Butch Smith, a Firefighter in his battle with cancer, has evolved into a fundraiser that has raised over $300,000 for our non-profit recipients. While Butch passed away January 1, 2017, we are just as committed to the mission," said tournament director, Sam Eaton.

Palm Beach Kennel Club is a sure bet for fast, fun excitement.

All In For Firefighters was founded in 2008 and organized the first Annual Butch Smith Poker Classic in honor of Captain Butch Smith, a Palm Beach County Fire Rescue Captain / Firefighter / Paramedic, diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, a rare blood cancer with no cure. Butch was only given a few years to live, so his brothers and sisters joined forces to help him fight and to give back.

The event continues to fight for others by educating fellow firefighters about the cancer risk they face every single day through their profession.
