Posted Date: 7/7/2014

Join us for the third annual Texas Hold'em Poker Tournament hosted by the Santa Clara Police Officers' Association and this year's proud sponsor - Bay Club Santa Clara. All proceeds to benefit Special Olympics Northern California.

The beautiful and spacious facility at Bay Club Santa Clara will allow us plenty of room for an enjoyable game of poker, live and silent auction, and new this year - a DJ and dance floor! Complimentary food, beer, and wine is included. A cash bar will be available for mixed cocktails.

Your $75 Tournament Participant registration includes $1,000 in chips. For an additional $25, you can join the event as a Tournament Plus Participant and will receive $2,000 in chips.

Your $50 donation allows you to be a spectator at this fun event. You’ll have plenty to do from enjoying complimentary food and beverages, watching the game, bidding on silent and live auction items, and enjoying the DJ and dancing that begins at 9:00 p.m. If you've always wanted to learn how to play Texas Hold'em, now is your chance. Your $50 spectator pass also gives you the opportunity to visit the Learner's table where we'll have a professional dealer on hand ready to show you how to play. Once you've learned the skills of the game and you're feeling lucky, you can join the tournament play for an extra fee. The top three finishers get great prizes!

Registration is being accepted online.
