Poker Tournament

I will be running the NYC Marathon this year on behalf of the Michael J Fox Foundation. YES!, I will too be raising and indirectly asking for money. I filed the paperwork with the foundation on Friday and am finalizing everything with the foundation this week. I am planning on at least two poker tournaments to help raise money as well as an art and sports memorabilia raffle. I am scouting sites for the tournament, The Place reception area on the top floor has been suggested AND since Friday I have acquired an autographed caddyshack painting by Bill Murray, a 2004 Stanley Cup championship year signed Brad Richards Lightning Jersey. More stuff in the works like Bucs, Rays memorabilia as well as game tickets, golf packages, etc. Could I see some posts on the poker tournament interest level? I need to figure out if I need to extend the invite past the kb realm which is vast. The buy in will probably be $20-$25 and I am working out the prize details but there will be cash and prizes awards.

Thank you.

I've always supported my friends that have wanted to run or walk for a good cause, so I'll loose some monies playing poker.

I can donate a signed photo of me running across the PAL fields naked with Griff in the picture. Let me know what size you want. You will probably get big dollas for that.
