Any experience with charity events?
 
I'm working on setting up a local Road Hockey Tournament in my community with all profits to be donated to the Salvation Army.

So far, I believe I need a permit to sell water. I've got an application to use the local tennis courts to run games.

Any advice or anything anyone could give me of things to watch out for and other things I might need to run a successful event?

Yes, I watched the Habs give away last night's game to the Sens.

You should contact the local news station to get more media coverage

Not really worried about dirt. You can find dirt on just about any organization/charity.

My cousin works with the local Salvation Army and they do amazing things in our community. They send children to camp for the summer, they've given people cars, shelter, clothes. They run food drives constantly to help out the community.

Now, I'm not religious, so I have no clue if Christian beliefs are that strict. But I know that in our community, they don't ask people if they are gay before helping people out. They just help.

I would be donating the profits to the local Salvation Army alone, not through the online website.

He means that you should use the media to help publicize the event. Don't spend too little time on the logistics, you might even need some volunteer security or someone to at least keep things organized depending on how many people you think might be coming. Contact the Salvation Army and see if they have resources that can assist or otherwise helpful info. Look online too
