Everyone's invited

What if you found out your child was very sick? What if you had to travel a long way and face treatment for your loved one in a strange city?

Blogger lightning36 and his family traveled from Champaign IL to Minneapolis -- this was the situation he found himself in. The Ronald McDonald House helped ease the trauma for him. "Keeping families together when they need it most" is their awesome slogan.

Blogger Oh Captain lives in Minneapolis and was there to help lightning. He saw firsthand how amazing the Ronald McDonald House is. Along with some help from Al Can't Hang, he's organized a special tournament on Full Tilt Poker on Wednesday, July 16, for bloggers to have some fun for a good cause. (This will replace the Mookie for one week.)

"Everyone's Invited," says OhCaptain. "(It's) time to spread the word and give back."

The entry fee is $10 with $5 going into the prize pool and $5 going to the Ronald McDonald House charities.

They say the best money (to win) is bloggers' money. That needs to be corrected. The best money is blogger money when you are helping a good cause. Plan to play. If you can't play, you can still help by pimping it.

Date: Wednesday, June 16
Time: 10 P.M. EDT (Same time as The Mookie)
Buddy Dank Radio will be broadcasting it
Charity: Ronald McDonald House
Fee: $5 + $5 (Tournament, charity)

  1. I don't know much about Ronald McDonald's house, but I've heard they do good work. Perhaps McDonald's could do even more good by serving food that was actually good for you, instead of the opposite?

  2. @Jacob: I agree that a lot of their food is bad for you and they aren't likely to change their menu any times oon.

    The RM House is certainly worthwhile, however. I'm happy to support it.

  3. Will be in Mn. Boo.. Good Luck.
