Hollingsworth said the funds will help support and provide for the team. “We’ll use the money for uniforms, head-gear, and things of that nature. Also, it will help underprivileged youth who possibly aren’t able to afford tournament fees during the season. Additionally, it will help cover the club fee, which includes the USA wrestling card.”

The club is hoping to raise between $1500 and $2000. Tickets are $35.00 at the door, which includes entry into the Texas Hold’em tournament and a pulled pork dinner. The card game will begin at 7 p.m. following the meal at 6 p.m. For more information contact Charles Hollingsworth at 573-230-1368 or Brad Adams at 660-232-4058.
