Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A poker tournament was held on Saturday to raise funds for injured police officers.
The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino hosted the tournament, as well as a silent auction.
Organizers said they tried this type of fundraiser in the past, and Saturday's event had a great turnout.
"This is our second go at it, and this seems to be much better and it's growing and hopefully this year it will be better so in the years to come, it's going to be awesome," said Sgt. Alan Davidson, Injured Police Officers Fund.
The Injured Police Officers Fund helps reduce the financial burden families feel after the death of an officer killed in the line of duty.
The fund also helps officers injured on the job.
