If you are in legal trouble, that last thing you want to do is gamble on the outcome.

But if you want to support Legal Aid of Northwest Texas, you are encouraged to hit the casino.

Casino Night, Sept. 29, at 5:30 p.m. in the Fort Worth Stockyards, that is.

Labeled Hold ’Em For Help, the fund-raising event will help fund a program that offers free civil legal assistance to low-income Texans who wouldn’t otherwise be able to secure such legal representation.

The organization was originally incorporated in 1951 as Fort Worth Legal Foundation and is now one of three Legal Services Corp.-funded legal aid programs in Texas and the fifth largest legal aid program in the United States, the organization said on its website.

Legal Aid of Northwest Texas serves low-income residents in 114 counties in North and West Texas with 15 branch offices located in Abilene, Amarillo, Brownwood, Dallas, Denton, Fort Worth, Lubbock, McKinney, Midland, Odessa, Plainview, San Angelo, Waxahachie, Weatherford and Wichita Falls.
