Foundation goes all-in with Texas Hold'em fundraiser
The Estacada Community Foundation is inviting everyone interested to an evening of Texas Hold'em poker.
The event, a fundraiser for the foundation, will take place Saturday, Jan. 27, at the Estacada Community Center, 200 S.W. Club House Drive. Registration begins at 5 p.m., and games start at 6 p.m. Poker is limited to the first 100 players, though the evening will also feature blackjack tables.The admission price of $40 includes starter chips, appetizers, beer and wine.
Estacada Community Foundation President Bruce Wilbur said he hopes the event raises awareness of the organization, as well as funds for future projects.
"We want to get our name out there. Not a lot of people know about the foundation," he said. "We want to have a nice evening with the community."
Founded in 1998, the Estacada Community Foundation supports Estacada schools, art programs and community events. Recently, the group has given grants to the cutlery class at Estacada High School, the Estacada Timber Festival and a new hitting cage near the baseball stadium. They also award scholarships to two Estacada High School graduates each year.
For the top players, prizes will include a flat screen TV, Google Home system, live feed drone, a True Value gift card and a Visa gift card.
Those interested in reserving a spot at the event in advance can send their name, phone number and a check payable to the Estacada Community Foundation to P.O. Box 1498 in Estacada.
