WLL Poker Tournament Fundraiser

This year for our major Spring fundraiser, Washoe Little League will be hosting a poker tournament. If you don’t play poker, don’t worry. the tournament is fun and friendly and open to all parents, friends of the league, and family (adults). If anything, this is a great opportunity to meet other folks in the league including coaches, board members, and our fellow Washoe families who fill the stands game after game.

The entry fee is $75 and goes to league operations – including the sun screens above the stands, All-Star tournament expenses, and other capital improvements to our fields that make our fields some of the best in the area for baseball.

As always, we greatly appreciate the generous support of Washoe Little League by our families. We couldn’t be the League of Champions without it!
