Toby Keith's OK Kids Korral

Each month, our Association plays "Korral the Ace" at our luncheons.  Buy 1 ticket for $1.  If your ticket is drawn, you get to pull a card from the stack of cards.  If you pull the ACE, you win half the pot & the other half goes to OK Kids Korral.  If you don't pull the ACE, the card drawn is disarded and the pot grows for next month!
