Vail Rotary’s 6th Annual Texas Hold’em event, held on Friday, August 4th at Hacienda Del Lago, was a resounding success. This year’s winner of the $250 Visa card was Rob Harrington. Thanks to all the players for their support and especially the entire restaurant staff at Hacienda Del Lago (520) 647-3109.
Our original goal was a maximum of 40 players but quickly grew to 50. Everyone was a winner and took home a donated “thank you” gift from local retailers: Pyramid C.U., Freddie’s, Native Wings, Cinemark, Dave & Busters, Del Lago, Costco, Papa Murphy’s, Bistro 44, Texas Roadhouse, Vail Dairy Queen, Outback, Fuddruckers, Voyager Resort, Fry’s, Famous Sam’s, Planet Fitness and more!
A special thanks to our sponsors: Rita Ranch Automotive (Terry Newman), Long Realty (Jill Pilling), Rita Ranch Car & Dog Wash (Mike Adams) and Roadrunner Office Supplies (Jerry Gerber). Terry, Jill, and Jerry are also Vail Rotary Club members.
Vail Rotary Club has plans to make the Texas Hold’em event a twice-a-year fund raiser for local scholarships. We are checking on a date in late February or early March 2018 as well as our recurring date of the 1st Friday in August (8/3/18). For all our upcoming events, you will see it here in the Vail Voice.
