What do you get when you mix poker and cats? A fun way to raise money for rescue

Local News

Many gathered at downtown Fresno’s Club One Casino Saturday night for a good cause: Poker for Paws.

It’s the third annual event at the casino where money is raised for the Cat House on the Kings, a local animal rescue and sancutary located along the Kings River in Parlier.

“This is a key time for us, every year, to be able to raise money so we can spay and neuter as many animals as possible, take care of their medical needs and find homes for them,” says Beth Caffrey, media and donor relations.

Raffle tickets were sold, and winners got prizes, which were donated, like golf for four at Fort Washington Country Club or a large TV.

All proceeds will be matched by Club One Casino, dollar for dollar.
