Perhaps you’ve seen one of my 2 million tweets in the last few days. Or my 700 Facebook statuses (statii?). But just in case you missed it, here’s something you won’t want to miss:
The First (Annual?) Benefit Poker Tournament in Gap, PA.
Yes, I’m talking about bringing Texas Hold ‘Em to the bastion of Anabaptism that is Central PA.
Yes, we’re playing on a Sunday afternoon.
Yes, there are cash prizes involved.
If the combination of those three doesn’t smash every paradigm there is of Amish Country, well, I don’t know what it would take. But the thing is, it’s for a great cause. My sister and brother-in-law are adopting an Ethiopian child any day. They’ve gone through the process, been approved, and are now waiting for the phone call introducing them to their new baby.
But as well all know, adoption isn’t an inexpensive process. So all buy-in and concession money raised at our poker tournament will go directly toward their adoption costs. The prize money ($500 for first, plus other prizes) is all being raised from separate donors.
To check out the details for the tournament, and to RSVP, click HERE.

If you have a spare minute, do me a favor: I won’t have access to the internet all day (ie, I won’t be able to pester you today with innumerable tweets and status updates of this blog post), so please share this post if you can.
Have a great weekend!
