Our Biggest Fund Raiser, with more guests, more members, more volunteer hours, and more dollars earned than any other to date:
Yessir, our central Indiana / Indianapolis east side WEEKLY hosted Tuesday Night Poker (Texas Hold-em, cash games) and Wednesday night Sit-n-Go (winner attends the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, on us! details below*, cash games) poker tournaments help us earn the proceeds necessary to donate all that we do in New Palestine & Indiana & our United States - over a Quarter Million ($250,000.00) Dollars since launching this event in 2010 - with plenty of spinoff to help fund our entire Legion Family!
Every Tuesday night includes meals prepared and served by our Sons members, with Legion Family help, as a fund raiser for the SAL (Sons of the American Legion) accounts.
And there's always a 50/50 raffle most generously supported by our tournament guests - some nights it's for our Auxiliary, others, a fund raiser for our Riders. Pit boss Andy or Tom or Phil or maybe our waitress for the evening (Liv or Sandy or . . .) draws the winner at the first break.
