La Jolla Town Council hosting charity poker night

Charity poker night is coming to La Jolla, courtesy of the La Jolla Town Council.

The once-a-month gathering — on the first Tuesday, beginning Oct. 4 at Hennessey’s — will feature a social hour with lessons in Texas Hold ‘Em for beginners. Then, from 7 to 10 p.m., participants will square off at the tables.

Proceeds will be split between the Town Council, a selected charity and the winner. Town Council vice president John Weinstein, who is organizing the event, said the winner will pick the charity for the following month.
