Hello All!

My wife was recently diagnosed with ALS and I have set up a poker tournament on Full Tilt Poker to raise money for the Memphis Walk to D' Feet ALS being held October 20th.

The tournament is on Tuesday, October 2 at 8:25 PM Eastern Time. It is a $5 + $5 buy-in, with $4.50 of the fee going directly to Ami's Awesome Army walk team.

The tournament ID is 28043574 and the password is "als_ami". The link to our walk team's page is http://web.alsa.org/goto/ami.yoder.

Feel free to post any questions in this thread, hope to see some people in the tournament!

Thanks Cindy, so far there are 27 people registered, which is $121.50, plus several poker players have donated directly to our walk team.

Well, the poker tournament ended up having 64 people and $320 was raised by the entry fee, and another $490 was donated by people playing in the tournament! Everyone had a good time!

The Brampton/ Bramalea Kinsmen used to run a Euchre Tournament and had good success with it. My in laws still play euchre weekly at their church group so I guess everybody isn't playing poker yet.
