Kudos & Kindness: Thanks for making poker tourney a success


Thanks for making poker tourney a success

The Carson City Sunset Rotary Club would like to thank the community for supporting its first Texas Hold ’em Poker Tournament held Jan. 21 at Eagle Valley Golf Club.

The beneficiaries of this fundraiser are our local junior high students who will successfully interview for positions to a week-long leadership camp called Rotary Youth Leadership Awards.

We raised more than $2,300 at this event and could not have put it on without the assistance of Star Anderson, general manager of the Carson Nugget, and her poker room manager, Karen Newton.

Other notables in our success were Eagle Valley Golf Club, Bob Langson, poker dealers from the Carson Nugget and of course, our great community.

With youth as our focus this year, we have found the community to be very responsive to our request for support, auction and raffle items and thank Costco, Best Buy, Alie’s Flowers, Little People Portraits and Adele’s.

Look for our next fundraiser coming April 14 at Fuji Park, the Hometown Hoedown.

Thanks, Carson City, for helping us help the kids.

Deb Young

Chair, Carson City Sunset Rotary
