Rotary euchre tournament hosts 90

GREENSBURG — The Greensburg Rotary Club held its 13th annual Euchre Tournament to Benefit Special Olympics Saturday, Feb. 22 at the Knights of St. John Hall.

Ninety players took to the tables to battle for the $1,000 top prize, with 52 outlasting the morning competition to move on to the afternoon finals. This year, Jay Gayheart took home the trophy and the money followed by Loren Gale Fogel ($500), Paul R. Scott ($250), Kenneth Bradley ($150) and Charlie Israel ($100).

Prizes were also given for the most “lones” in the morning and afternoon sessions, with Lisa Hopper earning the $50 prize for her morning performance, and John Dwiggins Jr. for the afternoon.

An additional “split-the-pot” consolation round was conducted for all interested in the afternoon, and Mary Ann Sullivan walked away with $140.

As has been the tradition for the event, the Greensburg Rotary Club will be using proceeds from the Euchre Tournament to charter a tour bus for our local Special Olympians to travel to the summer games in Terre Haute. Additional earnings will be used to benefit Rotary community projects and other local charitable organizations as available.
