pool-related fundraising efforts - 04-27-2020, 05:06 AM

I'm not rich but I'm hanging in
meanwhile I know many out there are really struggling
are there any pool-related fundraisers you all can share?
local rooms, players, anybody in the game that needs help
post it


A billiard table is that richest of metaphors,
by turns a theatre, an altar, touchstone, gauntlet,
ritual ground, a gunfighter's high noon, a refuge,
a verdant landscape for balls to scatter and rest in meaningful synchronicity,
a classroom, a karma dance, mirror of moods, a guide and trusted friend...

I'm running a Jacoby cue raffle giveaway where the winner has their choice of 2 cues from Jacoby. $25 a spot for a chance at 2 cues worth 1600/1700. Down to 10 spots but it has slowed down.

It is to help support Chalk It Up in Manteno Illinois.

The last childcare facility my wife built & directed for 26 years before retiring, she was an amazing and effective fundraiser. Among events in the silent auction at her annual fundraiser was often a "Billiards event". Compared to the big ticket items in the live auction, it never brought more than a few $hundred, but it could be incorporated in many types of fundraisers. (20 - 30 silent auction items bringing 100 -350 or so add up, too.)

helping people that cannot help themselves because of real misfortune is wonderful.

but if you help those that just live paycheck to paycheck or spend all they got then you are just reinforcing their bad behavior till next time.

This is usually my time to fundraise. To help my junior player traveling to national tournaments. None of the national tournaments have cancelled yet, but I think it will just be a matter of time. A lot of my kids family's cant afford a family vacation and hold their kids back from playing in Nationals so our community does a great job of making sure these kids get a chance to play in a national tournament. If these tournaments dont get cancelled I am sure our community will pull through yet again with short notice and take care of the kids.
