Round up some winning hands for poker fundraiser

From page A3 | December 27, 2012 |

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. Tickets are $60 each for tournament play and $40 each for “greenhorn,” non-tournament tables. To go along with the theme, Western wear is encouraged.

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.

The funds will help pay college tuition, living expenses, clothing for job interviews, transportation and other items needed to support young adults’ transition from status as a foster child to becoming a productive adult member of the community.

“These are kids who age-out of the foster care system and are without a safety net,” said Lea Rosenberg, a 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.”

This year, in addition to having a professionally run Texas Hold ’Em tournament, Soroptimists added “greenhorn” tables. These tables, with professional dealers, are geared toward learners, or those who would rather play poker in a more relaxed setting.

The tournament players will vie for three prizes of up to $500. All greenhorn players are automatically entered into a drawing for one Southwest Airlines round-trip ticket to anywhere in the lower 48 states through April 2014. Players must be present to win. The greenhorns also will have chances to win other prizes throughout the evening.

In addition to the evening’s events, anyone, regardless of attendance, may enter the drawing to win two round-trip tickets on Southwest Airlines. Those ticket holders need not be present to win. Raffle tickets are $10 and may be purchased any time before or during the event.

To purchase event or raffle tickets or for more information, contact Allison Wooley at allison312520@gmail.com or Juelie Roggli at juelrog@gmail.com or 530-756-3276. Tickets and more information are also available online at www.SIDavis.org.
