On Sunday, April 11, the Mateel Community Center in Redway will host a night of gambling fun at the 3rd annual Harold Murrish Memorial Hold Em, a Texas Hold Em poker tournament which offers participants the opportunity to test their skills against other local players in this favorite card game. The tournament honors the many contributions of Harold and Helen Murrish, two important community supporters and proceeds will benefit the many diverse programs of the Mateel Community Center.
Buy-in for the Texas Hold Em poker tournament is $75 per participant with an opportunity for a second $50 buy-in after the first elimination round. Buy-in comes with free drinks and finger foods. Three winners will take home great prize packages, copious bragging rights, an engraved bracelet, and will also have their names added to the new Harold Murrish Memorial Hold Em winners plaque.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and games start promptly at 7. Space is limited to 50 players and interested participants are encouraged to contact the Mateel office ASAP to sign up in advance. Sign-ups will also be taken at the door if space is still available on the day of the tournament. This tournament is open to those 18 and over only. Stop by the Mateel office in Redway or call 923-3368 for additional info and don’t miss this chance to test your poker skills while supporting the work of the Mateel Community Center in the Harold Murrish Memorial Hold Em on Sunday, April 11.
