My Favorite Charity: Ghent Bar Tour & Hope House Foundation

Email  Print Print  

Next week I’ll be attending Pubcon in Las Vegas, a conference for online publishers, and one of the fun events going on is a charity poker tournament hosted by my buddy DK at Purposeinc. To participate, we were asked to write about our favorite charity and mine, without question, is the Ghent Bar Tour, which supports the Hope House Foundation. I don’t often write too much about the charities we support, which I probably should change for the future (let me know in the comments if you think so!), but I have written about the Ghent Bar Tour in the past (1, 2).

My friend Scott has been running the twice-annual Ghent Bar Tour for the last few years and I’ve had the great pleasure of being a sponsor every time he’s done it. He’s raised tens of thousands of dollars for the Make A Wish Foundation and Hope House Foundation. This past summer, they raised nearly $12,000 in one of the worst recessions we’ve seen in decades. That’s a testament to Scott, his team, the 75 volunteers, and all the generous sponsors who kicked in to support such a worthy cause.

Also, if you’ll be in Vegas next week, either for Pubcon or just for fun, shoot me an email and we can hang out.

    I live in California. For me it’s PG&E, take it or leave it.

    We do a lot of fund raising for the Russel Home in Orlando.

    Jim, not sure how I missed this when it originally posted – I think I was in Singapore on business (for my real job) and the internet at the hotel was spotty. Thanks as always for all of the support – we’re now in the hundreds of thousands! It’s pretty crazy to think how far it’s come in such a short time over the last four years…
