Players can enter the tournament with a $150 admission fee that includes dinner, one drink ticket and two drawing tickets while non-players can enjoy the festivities with a $50 entry fee that also includes dinner, one drink and a drawing ticket. However, all attendees must be 21 and up in order to join. To RSVP or for more information about the event, please visit Eventbrite or call 310-458-8988.

A variety of prizes will be awarded along with delicious dinner options throughout the night as well as desserts and drinks!
