Good morning Joey, I wanted to see if you would be interested in posting something about a fundraiser my family and I are hosting this coming weekend. The following is a little something about how the tournament came to be and what it supports. The flyer is attached. Thanks!
Team Smitty is a group of people comprised of Mike Smith’s family, friends, and people that Mike had touched over the years. Our goal is to make sure that Mike’s memory and spirit lives on in our hearts, minds, and memories! We are also dedicated to helping others in the same way that our community helped Mike, and all of us, during his times of struggle.
As part of our effort to help others, we hold an annual Texas Hold’Em Tournament and include a 50/50 drawing and raffle prizes. The tournament is a fun night that brings friends together, new and old, for a few laughs and a chance to share in Mike’s memory, while raising money to assist those in need. This is an event that Mike created years ago in support of the Relay for Life. Since Mike’s passing in 2012, we have carried on the tradition of this event each year. The last year we held it prior to COVID (2019), we were able to help 5 local families who had been impacted by cancer and/or other life hardships.
The event will be held on Saturday night, May 7th at 6:00 at the St. Peter’s Club (registration starts at 5:00).
