NCC Hosting Texas Hold'em Tournament on October 3

Newport Central Catholic is hosting its 5th Annual Texas Hold'em Tournament on Saturday, October 3 in the school gym. 

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and the tournament begins at 7:00 p.m. The cost is $65.00 if pre-registered and $85.00 if paying at the door. The tournament is limited to 250 players. Players may purchase up to two $500 chips before play for $10 each. No re-buys. 

Proceeds from the tournament support PABO (Parent, Alumni, Booster Organization), which sponsors and funds projects at NCC, and a scholarship in memory of Jeff Wagenlander, NCC class of 1991. The scholarship is offered to a qualifying male and female student entering their sophomore, junior, or senior year. Recipients are selected based on an application process demonstrating their academic achievement, leadership skills, and participation in varied extracurricular activities.  

The Wagenlander Family and Jeff’s classmates are organizing and helping run this annual event.
