A full house could hit a home run for OCC baseball

October 28, 2011

Poker sharks can get in on the action for a good cause at a November Texas Hold 'em fundraising event.

The Orange Coast College baseball team is hosting the fifth annual Pat & Phyllis Texas Hold'em Memorial Fundraising Tournament on Nov. 12 to raise money to spruce up the Wendell Pickens Baseball Field.

The funds raised will go toward a new entrance, including a snack bar and restrooms.

The event includes a buffet dinner before participants play Texas Hold 'em, blackjack and Bunco. There will also be a cash bar and giveaways.


Registration is $100 for poker and $50 for blackjack or Bunco. There are also table sponsorships available.

Dinner begins at 5:30 p.m. with tournaments starting at 6:30 p.m. at the OCC Sailing Center, 1801 W. Coast Hwy. in Newport Beach.
