    I just had a lady walk (could understand me but could not talk) into my office with a well worn orange sheet of paper requesting donations for a tournamnet in Houston in August 2010 (past) and March (2011). The form even had three celebrity names typed in with contribition of around

    No contact information on the form or way I could validate information. I told her I would need to check. Is this request valid? If so, I would suggest some accrediation information and other contact numbers.

    If you send me further information perhaps I will contibute. Thanks.
