SHARE: facebook Twitter icon Linkedin icon Google+ icon Email icon |  PRINTER-FRIENDLY  |  COMMENTS
The second annual "All in for Guide Dogs" Hold 'em Tournament is a sure bet for both fun and fundraising.
The poker tournament will be held from 3 to 7 p.m. Feb. 16 at the Tulalip Resort Casino, 10200 Quil Ceda Blvd. The tournament is sponsored by Machinists Union Local Lodge 751-C and is a fundraiser for Guide Dogs of America.
Local 751-C sponsored the tournament for the first time last year, and raised $9,000 for the charity.
"Our first tournament was a big success, so we decided to do it again, and to add more players this time," union President Ron Coen said.
There is a $100 entry fee, with a limit of 150 entries -- which is 50 more than last year. Lessons will be offered before tournament play starts. The top finishers will split a final table payout of $3,500. For more information, call 425-355-8821.
