President Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner and daughter Ivanka Trump hosted an event at the White House last Tuesday for Jewish children suffering from cancer.

The children were brought to the White House under the auspices of Chai Lifeline, an organization dedicated to assisting Jewish children suffering from cancer. As part of the visit, the children met Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Dr. Ben Carson, took a tour of the Harry S. Truman Bowling Alley and visited Vice President Mike Pence's office.

"Honored to spend yesterday afternoon bowling with these amazing kids. Thank you for visiting us at the White House!" wrote Ivanka Trump on Chai Lifeline's Instagram.

Chai Lifeline thanked the White House for enabling the children to tour the President's residence, writing on its Facebook page that "not too many people get the opportunity to go bowling at the Harry S. Truman Bowling Alley in the White House. Even fewer people get to bowl with Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner. As the Chai Lifeline Mid-Atlantic Region’s “presidential” children with cancer wrapped up a wonderful day touring the White House on a VIP exclusive tour, Jared and Ivanka surprised our superstar children with their delightful and generous spirit."

"Our kids - and their parents - were starstruck and blown away by their warmth and compassion. Thank you, Jared and Ivanka, for giving our families an experience they will never forget."

Ivanka Trump is not the only one in the Trump family with a record of supporting Chai Lifeline, which is an organization dedicated to helping Jewish children suffering from cancer. In January, the Associated Press reported that President Trump's son Eric had donated large sums of money to Chai Lifeline before and that Chai Lifeline chairman Larry Spiewak attended Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump’s wedding.
