Ptolemy Poker Run 2018

Come out to the Highland Strip in the University Area for Ptolemy’s annual Poker Run fundraiser!

Stop 2: Newby's (2:30-4:00 p.m.)
Stop 3: The Bluff (4:00-6:00 p.m.)

There is no limit to how many hands you can purchase, and additional raffle tickets are only $1! Added bonus: extra raffle tickets will be included if you purchase poker hands with cash!
