Poker tournament will flush out high rollers

Think fast-paced poker games, fabulous food, lots of fun and good works to boot, and what do you get? It’s Soroptimist International of Davis’ annual Texas Hold ’Em Night fundraiser, Saturday, March 23. The event is at the Davis Odd Fellows Hall, 415 Second St.

Doors open at 6 p.m. and tournament play starts promptly at 6:30 p.m.

Serious poker players can play in the tournament for $60, with prizes up to $500. For those who are new to poker and want to learn to play in a fun and more relaxing way, there are “greenhorn” tables for $40 per ticket. All greenhorn players will be entered into a drawing for one Southwest Airline round-trip ticket and the top three players will win prizes.

The price of admission includes hearty appetizers and desserts prepared by chef Jeff Oblinger of Inspiration Point Catering. To go along with the Western theme, the Wild West Saloon will be open and Western wear is encouraged. Also planned are a 50/50 drawing and a raffle for two Southwest Airline round-trip tickets.

Tickets are available online at SIDavis.org; at Avid Reader Active, 605 Second St.; or by contacting Allison Woolley at 530-758-1796 or Allison@welcometodavis.com.

Soroptimist International of Davis is a group of business and professional women who donate their time and resources to provide service to others. Over the past few years, much of that support has centered on the emancipated foster youth program. Funds raised at the tournament will help pay college tuition, living expenses, clothing for job interviews, transportation and other items needed to support young adults’ transition from status as foster children to becoming productive adult members of the community.

“These are kids who age out of the foster care system and are without a safety net,” said Lea Rosenberg, club member. “Our club has made it a major focus to support these youths. Last year’s event raised more than $10,000 for this cause, and we look forward to an even more successful event this year.”

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 juelrog@gmail.com or call 530-219-5444.
