Editor’s note: The article in the Oct. 13, 2021, issue of the Pleasanton Express stated an incorrect location for the Constable Percy Medina Scholarship Poker Tournament. The correct location is the St. Andrew Catholic Church Hall.

The Inaugural CPM Poker Tournament benefiting the Constable Percy Medina Memorial Scholarship fund will be Oct. 23, 6-11 p.m. at St. Andrew Catholic Church Hall in Pleasanton.

The poker ticket price, which includes dinner, is $100. Dinner tickets are $25. First prize is a $1,000 gift card, second prize is a $500 gift card and third prize is a $250 gift card. Come enjoy dinner, dancing, door prizes, a Texas Hold ’em Poker tournament and other games.

Scholarships from this fund were awarded to eight Pleasanton High School graduates. Monies raised this year will provide the funds for future awards. They are hoping to provide even more scholarships this year.

There are several criteria considered when choosing recipients, but the most important part of the selection process was an essay the applicants wrote on the importance of family.

Only 100 tournament tickets will be sold. To purchase tickets, or for more information call Priscilla Castillo at 210-639-6553 or Gabe Medina at 512-995-9394.
