You are invited to the fourth annual 50/50 Poker Tournament to benefit three Haitian children. Sara and I facilitate a 50/50 Poker Tournament every year to cover the tuition, books and uniforms of three Haitian Children.
Last year was super successful thanks to a great group of participants. We had an excellent turnout for what proved to be an amazing time. Jeff B walked away with all the chips and we were able to reach our goal of raising $800. Many thanks to everyone who participated! It goes without saying that events like this wouldn’t work without people willing to give to the cause.
We are hoping to do it all again! We have moved the date up to help ensure the money gets to the children well ahead of the school year. Our goal is to, once again, raise $800 for the same three children to cover the cost of uniforms, books and tuition.

These quotes about the children are from a letter we received from a volunteer who delivered the money last year:
The first photograph is a single young boy of 6 years. His name is Andy, and I learned that he was under the rubble of what had been a building for 2 days, with his parents and siblings all of whom died. He is living with his aunt, Laurent and Andy’s cousins. After the earthquake people were apparently walking by the ‘building’ when they heard a sound. After digging for a while they discovered Andy. It’s hard to imagine what he went through but he seems to being doing pretty well, thanks to people like you.
The second set of pictures is of Widens and Widensli. They are twins, and their father has never been a part of the family. Their mother was killed with a knife by someone trying to take her money in a village named Vil Kalali on the mainland. It is another truly sad story, but the boys look well and loved. It was fun to see them react to the gift.
