School mentor program schedules fundraiser

July 22, 2010

A poker tournament supporting the USD 204 WATCH D.O.G.S. program will be at 1 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 1, at Twister’s Grill and Bar, 13100 Kansas Ave.

This will be a no-limit Texas Hold-Em’ tournament with both rebuys and add-ons. Early registration is $40 and includes tournament entry ($4,000 in chips) and five raffle tickets. Registration at the door, from noon to 1 p.m., will be $50.

WATCH D.O.G.S. is a program used by Bonner Springs Elementary, Delaware Ridge Elementary and Edwardsville Elementary to help create a positive impact and influence between students and fathers.

The goal is to have fathers spend one day a year at the school to be an extra set of eyes and ears as a positive male role model.
