Mike Rewerts, David Sweezer and Charles Atwell compete in the Texas Hold 'em Tournament on Sunday afternoon at the Tiger Shrine Club in Columbia. "You can win a little bit and even have fun if you lose," Sweezer said.

COLUMBIA — The Columbia 20/20 Lions Club held its first ever Texas Hold 'em Tournament on Sunday at the Tiger Shrine Club. About 60 participants from mid-Missouri attended the tournament to meet new people, support local charities and win some extra cash. “One-hundred percent of what comes in goes back out,” Sandy McCann, Columbia 20/20 membership director, said. "With the response we’ve been getting, we’ll probably have a lot more of these in the future. We just believe in helping the community.”
