Hackensack Rotary Holds Annual Texas Hold'em Fundraiser

On Sunday, April 3, 2016, the Hackensack Rotary will be hosting their 3rd Annual Texas Hold’em Tournament at the Rochelle Park Knights of Columbus.  Entry in the tournament is $100 and there are prizes of up to $1,500 for the winner.  The tournament begins at 1:00 pm.



The tournament is run by a fully licensed professional casino operator, each table is run by a professional dealer.  Last year there were approximately 85 players and many spectators who enjoyed 4-5 hours of poker, fun, and camaraderie.

All of the net proceeds will be donated to the club to support their mission of providing scholarships, feeding the homeless, funding the Rotary's Gift of Life program (offering life saving heart surgeries), sending children to the Rotary Youth Leadership Award (a one week intensive leadership conference) and many more well deserving charities. 

Those interested in registering, or supporting the event with a sponsorship, can contact Dr. Dave DeOliveira at 201-490-6285 or hackrotarytix@gmail.com



Hackensack Rotary Holding Raffle for College Scholarships

The Hackensack Rotary Club is holding their annual raffle to benefit the High School Scholarship Fund.  Hackensack Rotary scholarships are made available to graduating seniors who are residents of Hackensack.  Scholarships are also presented to children of Hackensack firefighters from a special fund created after the tragic loss of five Hackensack firefighters in the Ford Dealership fire on July 1, 1988. Last year, the Scholarship Fund awarded $20,000 in scholarships to local High School seniors.

Raffle tickets are $10 and can be purchased from any Hackensack Rotarian, or by emailing hackrotarytix@gmail.com.  Each raffle ticket has six chances to win.  Drawings to win $200 will be held on April 21, May 5, May 12, May 19, and June 2.  On June 23rd, a $1,000 winner will be drawn.
