The cost is $50 per player. Entry forms will be available at all Machinists Union District Lodge 751 union halls in Puget Sound, including the Renton Union Hall at 233 Burnett Ave. N.

The tournament is a fundraiser for Guide Dogs of America, the California-based charity that provides service dogs and training in their use free of charge to people who are blind or have impaired vision from across the United States and Canada. Last year’s tournament raised more than $3,300.

IAM Local 751-E is affiliated with IAM District 751, which is the top fundraiser for Guide Dogs of America. Over the past seven years, the union has raised more than $2 million for the charity.

Originally formed in 1935 to represent hourly workers at the Boeing Co., District Lodge 751 of the International Association of Machinists & Aerospace Workers now represents more than 32,000 working men and women at 53 employers across Washington, Oregon and California.
