Lions to hold poker tournament at county fairgrounds


The Westfield Lions Club two-day Texas Hold’em Lions Poker Tournament for Sight will return Nov. 16 and 17 at the Hamilton County Fairgrounds, 2003 Pleasant St., Noblesville.

Proceeds support several Westfield Lions Club projects. The Lions support worldwide causes such as disaster relief and also work close to Westfield and Hamilton County by providing scholarships for high school seniors, conducting vision and health screenings, providing vision tests and eyeglasses for children, supporting the “Leader Dog” program for the visually impaired and contributing to funds for local fallen police and firefighters.

“The response has been fantastic, and we really appreciate the support from the community,” tournament chair Brian Abraham said. “This gives us the ability to highlight all of our charitable activities throughout the year.”

There will be three qualifying tournaments for the championship tournament, and the top 15 percent finishers will move on. If someone doesn’t place in a qualifier, they can register for another qualifier for their initial fee. Seat reservations are a buy-in of $130 at the door if reserved before Nov. 10.

There is a $25,000 payout for the top 25 finishers, with first place receiving $10,000 and a custom-tailored leather jacket. Prizes range from $100 to $4,000 for second- through 25th-place.

Walk-ins are accepted and cost $135. Cash-only is accepted at the door for reservations and walk-ins. For more or to reserve a seat, visit
