Tickets and Donations

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 laugher as we come together for a fun night of games and raffles.

That being said, we are happy to announce that we will be having an online Friends of Joe Renda Texas Hold ‘Em Poker Tournament. The tournament will follow the same format as in the years past and players can participate on any smart phone, iPad, or Tablet. Please follow the instructions below to participate in the tournament.

If you choose not to play or are unable to join us, but would like to donate, we would appreciate your donation.

All checks should be made payable to Friends of Joey Renda and mailed to the following address:


Maria Renda

11 Pearl Street

Whitehouse Station, NJ 08889

Thank you in advance for your support and participation!  Have a great year and stay healthy and safe.
