January 1, 2013The first highlight video from this year's event is done and embedded below: I plan on putting together at least one more before the tournament. I did make a mistake on the video, we raised $13,140 this year, not the $13,050 I put in the intro. Hopefully you enjoy it, and remember to clear your schedule for August 17th. We'll have an 8 team youth division in 2013 too. $50 per team for 11-to-15 year olds.

Also, I wrote out my final check to MAW for the tournament, $12,350, and I had three other checks made directly to the Make-A-Wish Foundation (because companies couldn't donate directly to me) and those totaled $700 more dollars so we raised $13,050 this year for a total in four years of $28,650. Then last night I opened up a letter from Darling's with another $90 donation in it from the money raised at the event by their Ice Cream Truck and money people donated while getting ice cream. Add that into the pot, and we raised $13,140 this year, and our grand total becomes $28,740, that is enough for 4 full wishes and another $4,740 toward another child. We play August 17th, 2013, and the goal is to raise $14,000. We're going to expand and add an 8 team (maximum 8 team) youth division for players at least 11 years old up to 16 years old (must still be 15 by day of tournament).
