Fund nursing scholarships
Mercy Auxiliary’s annual pinochle tournament fundraiser is enrolling players for the upcoming year. Games are $2 per person; funds gathered from play support a $1,500 nursing scholarship at Umpqua Community College.
With or without a partner, players interested in participating are asked to sign up as soon as possible, so game schedules can be prepared. The tournament runs from September through May, frequency of play is about twice a month. The fundraiser wraps up in June with a potluck at Mercy.
There are two groups of players. Card Sharks already have a partner; their game times are more flexible. The singles group can provide a partner; most of their games start at 1 p.m.
Information: Card Sharks 541-673-4823, Singles 541-673-5473.
