    Swim With Mike Poker Fundraiser: Sunday, March 25

    My friend Colin, who also lives in my building and is a Swim With Mike Recipient, is hosting a Poker tournament this Sunday starting at 2pm. If you are in the Los Angeles area, this will be a fun time. Don’t think of it as gambling $25 or $30, but as donating that money and then having fun for a few hours with some great people.

    Oh, and there are cool prizes – autographed memorabilia from the USC football team!

    If you want more details, contact me (darylholmlund [at] gmail [dot] com). I would love to have you come play or just come and hang out.

    Here is the information that Colin sent out:

    On March 25, I will be hosting a fundraiser poker tournament for Swim with Mike, a scholarship organization based out of USC which provides scholarships for former student-athletes who now have disabilities. We will have prizes for the top poker stars! All proceeds will go to Swim with Mike.

    The details are as follows:
    March 25
    2 PM-whenever we finish
    $25 by March 18/$30 at the door
    *dinner will be provided*

    If anyone knows someone who would like to donate food, prizes, or cash, please let me know as soon as possible. I would like to have everything sorted out ahead of time. Please plan on signing up and getting me the fee for the event by March 18 so that we are able to know how much food to purchase and can plan accordingly. Invite anyone else who may be interested as well! The more the merrier!

    If you are planning to mail your event fee, please send it to: 2390 Portland St. #102, Los Angeles, CA 90007

    Come support myself and an excellent organization! I will leave you with some great poker quotes for encouragement, because we all know that those of us in sip and puff wheelchairs are the best poker players this side of the Mississippi!

    “If, after the first twenty minutes, you don’t know who the sucker at the table is, it’s you.”
    “It’s not enough to succeed. Others must fail.” (Gore Vidal)
    “Gambling: The sure way of getting nothing from something.” (Wilson Mizner)
    “Your best chance to get a Royal Flush in a casino is in the bathroom”.

    Oh, and PS, I’m incredibly stoked because I just finished the Performance Assessment for California Teachers (PACT) that I’ve been working on. Now on to finishing some other projects before school starts up again!
