Making Good A Promise!

On Friday last  (May 18th, 2012) I made the first of a two-part donation to Temple Street Children's Hospital in Dublin, proceeds of my PokerStars World Blogging Championship win. Those of you who are familiar with the story will know that I pledged to donated half of my WBCOOP win to the hospital, a total of USD $2,500.

The hospital has been great to me down through the years as I take my daughter Aoife (see photo) there on regular 6-month eye check-ups. The hospital provides an excellent and much needed service to the families of sick children so it gave me great pleasure to be able to hand over a cheque to the value of USD $1,900 (€1,500). A further USD $600 will follow at the end of July when myself and a bunch of poker buddies will take part in a sky-dive to raise more funds for the hospital. I'll keep you posted on that one!

Once again I'd like to thank PokerStars for the prize, Temple Street for their hard work and commitment and finally thank you to all who have congratulated me and wished me well through-out, it's much appreciated!
