Texas hold'em competition in Pasco benefits the Alzheimer's Family Organization

The Alzheimer's Family Organization will host its Texas hold'em competition at 6 p.m. Sept. 12 at Aripeka Elks Lodge No. 2520, at 9135 Denton Ave. in Hudson.

This event took a brief hiatus last year, since the organization was not able to sell enough tickets. This year, the AFO has lowered ticket prices and changed the venue in hopes of rejuvenating the charity event.

"Well, we hope we can get this off the ground this year," AFO community services coordinator Kathy Montero said.

The event is co-sponsored by WJQB 106.3-FM and tickets cost $30 or two for $50.

In 2007, the event raised about $20,000. However, the winner of the contest takes home only "bragging rights" for Pasco County, since no monetary prize can be given.

For more information, call (727) 848-8888.

AIRSOFT: Games take place starting at 2:30 p.m. Saturdays, or occasionally at 5:30 p.m. Fridays, at 7839 Leota Lane in New Port Richey.

The cost is $10 per player per day. Gun rentals are available.

For information, call Ben Bush at (727) 534-8833.

All proceeds will go the Arc Nature Coast, which helps serve people with disabilities and their families.
