View Photos From Last Year's Event!

In 2015, nearly 200 players – including Erik Seidel, Hank Azaria, Jason Collins, Norman Lear, Justin Pugh, Eric Bogosian, Dulé Hill, Jazmyn Simon, and Andy Frankenberger – attended the inaugural Justice Is Blinds tournament to raise money for the Urban Justice Center’s critical legal work on behalf of low- and no-income New Yorkers. This year, will you make the final table?

 

"Thank you to last year's 200 attendees who raised $160k
impacting NYC's most vulnerable."
