The Women’s Contact Society is hosting a Texas Hold ‘Em Charity Poker Tournament called Hold ‘Em for Kidcare at the Laughing Loon next month.
All proceeds will go to the Kidcare Daycare Program, says event organizer Ashley Hyde.
There will be a guaranteed prize pool of $900 with the first prize being $500, Hyde says.
The buy in is $60 per person with two options to chip up, Hyde says. However, if a player is out of chips they are out the tournament as there are no “re-buys.”
The tournament starts at the Laughing Loon at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 6.
People who would like to play in the tournament or have questions are asked to contact Hyde at 250-392-4118.
Tickets are also available in advance at the Women’s Contact Society, 51A Fourth Avenue South.
Hyde reminds players to know their limit and play within it. The game is for adults 19 and older under licence number 81173.
