Tickets are now on sale for the Youth Project’s 13th Annual Hold ‘Em Not Hassle ‘Em fundraising poker tournament, to be held at the Valencia Country Club on Saturday, November 2, starting at 5 p.m.

More than 130 players will take over the clubhouse for a night of Texas Hold ‘Em-style poker, with a fantastic raffle, casino night, bingo, great food, wine and good friends.

“The 13th Annual Hold ‘Em Not Hassle ‘Em Tournament has continued to attract a new group of supporters each year,” said Kim Goldman, Youth Project executive director since 2005. “We are grateful for the ongoing support, even after 12 years of hosting it in Santa Clarita.”

In past years, this event has raised more than $20,000 for the Santa Clarita Valley Youth Project; the goal for this year is $25,000. Winners will have a chance to win gift certificates, electronics, bicycles, extravagant gift baskets, wine, VIP tickets to “Jimmy Kimmel LIVE” and so much more.

The Grand Prize winner will receive entry to the 2020 World Series of Poker tournament, a $1,000 value.

“This continues to be the best poker event in our valley. How can you deny yourself an evening playing poker, and new this year bingo, and raises money for a great cause?” said Anita Lombardi, Youth Project board president.

The Youth Project is celebrating more than 19 years of successfully providing free services to teens in the SCV. Since their doors opened in 2000, the Youth Project has assisted more than 35,000 local families, including 30,000 youth and 5,000 adults.

In 2018-2019, with services on six high schools and five junior high campuses, the Youth Project provided more than 8,000 hours of service to more than 1,000 young adults in the Santa Clarita Valley with serious life challenges, including depression, suicide, grief/loss, peer pressure and drug/alcohol abuse, Goldman said.

Sponsors include (in random order): Santa Clarita Soccer Center, Federal Escrow Inc., Gregg Goodman Insurance Agency, Inc., Shane Haserjian, Kathy Watterson with ReMax of Valencia, Tom Hough CPA, QM Design Group, Nancy Starczyk of Realty Executives, Yoga Yoga, The Magazine of Santa Clarita, The Signal, KHTS Hometown Station, and Inside SCV.

Sponsorships are still available, ranging from $500 to $5,000.

The buy-in to play poker is $125. For $40, a spectator may watch the casino games, bingo and raffle. To reserve a spot, visit HelpNotHassle.org or call 661-257-9688.

The Valencia Country Club is located at 27330 Tourney Road, Valencia 91355.
