Rooney Foundation poker Saturday

Rooney’s Golf Foundation will feature its fourth annual charity poker tournament at 6:30 p.m. Saturday at the Palm Beach Kennel Club.

 Proceeds will benefit Autism Project of Palm Beach County, FAU Honors College, Pathways to Independence and Potentia Academy. 

 The $50 entry covers the tournament, a buffet and prizes.  The top prize is a 2014 WSOP Circuit Seat (worth $1,600).  The top 10 percent win cash or prizes.  Registration begins at 5:30 p.m. 

  Non-playing participants can enjoy the buffet and greyhound races for just $25.  The event will also feature items such as getaways, dinners, sports and event tickets and celebrity bounties.

Rooney’s Golf Foundation has donated $442,500 to local Palm Beach County charities since 2001.  The funds are raised through the golf tournament, 5K and poker events. The seventh annual 5K Run/Walk is April 19 and the 13th annual RGF tournament is scheduled for late October / early November at PGA National.
