World Series of Cuero Fundraiser
The Cuero Chamber of Commerce Agriculture & Visitors Center began the Texas Hold'em Fundraiser in 2009 to help raise money for the Chamber's economic and community development programs throughout the year.
The event was such a success that we've made it an annual event and have added new and exciting table games, a live/silent auction, a gun raffle with amazing guns, and a meal that will satisfy your taste buds.
You don't have to be an avid player to enjoy the event. Come out and enjoy fellowship, laughs, good food with great friends.
All bets are on this Saturday, August 1 as the Cuero Chamber of Commerce will be hosting its 7th Annual World Series of Cuero Fundraiser at The Venue on Church Street.
Events include the ever-popular Wine Run, the long awaited Main Event Texas Hold’em, and the first ever post tournament Casino Night.
