Local law enforcement officers are organizing a Texas Hold ‘em poker tournament in honor of a slain Pierce County Sheriff’s deputy.

The tourney is Saturday, March 13 at the Puyallup Elks Lodge, 314 – 27th St. N.E., in Puyallup. Proceeds will go to the family of Pierce County sheriff’s deputy Kent Mundell, who was shot Dec. 21 after responding to a domestic violence call. He died of his injuries a week later.

The buy-in for the tournament is $75. Cash, checks and credit cards will be accepted, according to a flier for the event. “Unlimited re-buys available,” the flier states.

The night of the tournament, there will be a social hour and dinner from 5 to 6 p.m. The tournament begins at 6.

Tickets are available in advance at the Puyallup Police Department, 311 W. Pioneer, Puyallup police detective Adam Kleffman said.
