Poker fans can play and contribute to a local charity at an event in August.

The Vail Rotary Club’s third annual Texas Hold ’Em Tournament Fundraiser will be held from 6 to 10 p.m. Aug. 1 at Hacienda del Lago, 14155 E. Vía Rancho del Lago in Vail.

Proceeds from the fundraiser go toward the club’s main effort, which is to provide backpacks for schoolchildren.

The entry fee is $50, and space is limited. To reserve a seat, mail a check to Cienega Rotary Foundation, P.O. Box 432, Vail, AZ 85641, or call Fred Bruns, 396-0555. There’s a $50 re-buy for any player who busts in the first hour.

This year’s event is sponsored by Safeway, which is providing free food and drinks and is the major grant sponsor of the backpack program. The winner will receive a $250 Visa gift card. There will be other prizes as well, donated by restaurants, golf courses and other local retailers.
