Texas Hold ‘Em Tournament To Benefit KCFCA

Texas Hold ‘Em Tournament To Benefit KCFCA

by Rachel Heitzenrater - January 27, 2022

Kids Can’t Fight Cancer Alone (KCFCA) will host a Texas Hold Em tournament at the Troy Vets Club on Saturday, Feb. 5, from 1-9 p.m.

“The Texas Hold’em tournament was chosen by a board member,” said founder and Vice President Tracey Weldy. “It’s something different to offer people and usually comes with a good turn out.”

There are 84 spots total, with $100 entry for the event and $20 add ons. Payout will go to the top eight players of the night. All proceeds from this event will go directly to the non-profit that supports Bradford, Sullivan and Tioga counties. The non-profit helps local families of children diagnosed with childhood cancer and their financial needs.

“All money raised after paying out to the top eight players and any fees acquired related to having the event will be used for all the children in our organization. This can be from gas cards, medical bills not covered by insurance, hotel fees, household bills that families might need help covering related loss of work hours, car repairs to make sure the families have reliable transportation to get to appointments, help with groceries,” said Weldy.

All spots are required to be purchased prior to the event. They can be purchased online or by reaching out to a board member of KCFCA. Dinner and snacks will be provided, and there will be a cash bar. Doors will open at noon on the day of the event.

This event is one of many that the group organizes to help raise money for the kids they care for.

“We also have been trying to host different events around the area that we think the families will enjoy all together. We did one event in October at Millers Maze and we just hosted an event at the newly remodeled skating ring in Troy,” said Weldy. “We feel these events are important for the families. Not only to forget what they are going through or have gone through, siblings get to get a outing as well but most importantly to bring the families together….every family has their own story but no one knows what you are going though unless you have gone through it,” said Weldy.

The group is also still seeking volunteers to be dealers at the event. Contact Weldy or Michelle Ward for more information.
