In March of 2010 the Wheatley family organized the first in a series of Annual Memorial Charity Poker Events. They share their insight and offer simple advice in the planning of a successful fundraising event.
RECRUIT THE HELP OF A FEW FRIENDS… colleagues, or close relatives. Don’t assume you have to go at it alone. A charity event is not intended to be stressful…but rather relaxing, fun, and memorable. If the organizing of the event becomes to burdensome or overwhelming, you are less likely to repeat it. With the help of a few friends, it really can be a great experience! Establish an event “leader.” If you are not the leader, pick someone.
