    You could ask #1 if the person you were asking for the money usually had some in such situations, or if you were quite sure they had some on them - it is more of a request than a direct question; you can use #2 in any other situation.

    Dear Engee,
    since " money" is a non-countable noun .therefore, you can use either "any" or "some" with it.
