Cards were dealt and bets were made at the RV Hall of Fame Saturday and all for a good cause.

More than 250 players signed up for the sixth annual Texas Hold 'Em Charity Poker Tournament.

The event was put on by the Elkhart Breakfast Optimist Club.

About $100 thousand has been raised in past tournaments and money has gone to the Elkhart County Chapter of the Red Cross.
