Even greenhorns are welcome at Texas hold ’em tourney

By From page A5 | March 17, 2013

Tickets are still available for Soroptimist International of Davis’ annual Texas Hold ‘Em Night, which begins at 6 p.m. Saturday, March 23, at the Odd Fellows Hall, 415 Second St. in downtown Davis.

Serious poker players can play in the fast-paced tournament for $60, with prizes up to $500 in gift certificates. Newcomers to poker — or those who wish to learn or just have fun — can enjoy the “greenhorn tables” for novices for $40. The top greenhorn table player also will be eligible for Southwest Airline tickets. A raffle also features tickets on Southwest Airlines.

In addition to the fun and challenge of poker, a Wild West Saloon will be open, and Western wear is encouraged (but not mandatory).

The price of admission includes hearty appetizers and desserts prepared by Chef Jeff Oblinger of Inspiration Point Catering.

Tickets are available online at SIDavis.org; at Avid Reader Active, 605 Second St.; or by contacting Allison Woolley at 530-758-1796 or [email protected].

Soroptimist International of Davis was chartered in 1954 as a club of local businesswomen and community volunteers, supporting women and girls throughout the community. The Davis club emphasizes support for foster children and young adults who have recently left the foster care system.

The club meets every Wednesday at noon for lunch at the Davis Odd Fellows Hall. For more information about the club or the poker fundraiser, email [email protected] or call 530-219-5444.
