Poker night to boost Buckley Relay For Life

Have fun and help raise funds for the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life at the Anytime Fitness Poker Tournament at the Buckley Eagles Saturday. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.

For a $50 initial buy-in, enjoy a Texas Hold’em tourney with music and entertainment. Food and bar will be available. There will be chip re-buys during the first 90 minutes. All final table participants will be rewarded and $1,000 is guaranteed to the poker tournament winner. The event includes a silent auction and raffle tickets for non-poker players to support Buckley’s Relay For Life.

Poker tournament tickets can be purchased at Anytime Fitness in Buckley or Orting and the Firehouse Pub in Buckley. Participants must be at least 18 years old.

In keeping with its history of Relay support and sponsorship, Anytime Fitness is pledging the first $10,000 raised to the Relay For Life via their team. Owner Grant Pritchard said Anytime Fitness, “loves to support locally” and believes in the Relay For Life cause. Remaining funds are pledged to other local organizations.
