My Favorite Charity: Ghent Bar Tour & Hope House Foundation

Posted By Jim On 11/01/2009 @ 12:29 pm In Philanthropy | 4 Comments

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 [3]. To participate, we were asked to write about our favorite charity and mine, without question, is the Ghent Bar Tour [4], which supports the Hope House Foundation [5]. 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 [6], 2 [7]).

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 [8] and we can hang out.
