Dear Friends and Family:

I hope this finds you well as you and those you care about are staying safe in these unprecedented times. As you know, the Covid-19 pandemic has unfortunately cost millions of people their lives while drastically changing the daily lives for many of us.

In light of present-day cancellations on social gatherings and the restrictions placed on those that are permitted, it not practical to hold an in-person Friends of Joey Renda Texas Hold ‘Em Poker Tournament this fall 2020.

As you may know, we look forward each year to helping raise money for the Tisch MS Research Center of NY at this event, as well as having the opportunity to gather with friends and family to share food, drink, and laughter as we come together for a fun night of games and raffles.
