Local gamblers raise the stakes to benefit the Cornerstone Rescue Mission

By  | 

One local realtor was looking to go All-In Tuesday evening in the fight against homelessness.

It was a full house at the Moose Lodge as Remax Advantage of Rapid City hosted their second annual poker fundraiser with all the money raised going to the Cornerstone Rescue Mission.

Around 150 locals pulled up a chair and looked to ante-up to win first place in the tournament and leave the tournament *flush* with 300 dollars.

Remax chooses a different organization to help every year and being in the business of homes, they felt they could greatly serve those who are helping those who don't have a roof over their head.

Amy Klock says, "Espeically right now when there is so much devestation in our country with what's going on in Florida and Texas, and the wildfires in Montana. We feel helpless here and this is a great way to give back to our community that gives so much to us."

The event also *dealt* a raffle drawing for prizes at the event.
Last year ReMax raised $5,000 and they are hoping to go straight over that total this year.
