Prizes will be awarded to the top players. Bingo also begins at 8 p.m. and costs $5 per card and is good for the entire night. Lots of awesome prizes will be available.
There will be a silent auction throughout the night. Raffles are also available: $20 per chance for a Benelli Nova shotgun, and $5 per chance for a diamond necklace valued at $600. Drawings for these raffles will take place during the intermission of the poker tournament.
