Ivanka Trump and husband Jared Kushner hosted a bowling event at the White House for children undergoing treatment for cancer this week.
The children, who traveled to the White House with Chai Lifeline, were given a VIP tour of the presidential residence and were ''surprised'' with Ivanka and Jared's ''delightful and generous spirit.''

Chai Lifeline is a cancer support organization that aims to help not only child cancer patients, but also their families, recognizing that the burden of illness falls on everyone within a family. The organization runs free programs - like the White House tour - and while the organization does not describe itself as solely Jewish, or solely for Jewish patients, they do run programs in Israel, and host a summer program called Camp Simcha.
Trump converted to Orthodox Judaism before marrying husband Jared Kushner in 2009. Ivanka and Jared even hosted a Shabbat meal for the president's cabinet in January in their home in the Kalorama neighborhood of Washington, DC. Her social media presence has brought a touch of family to the new administration's image.
