Kiwanis Club of West Seattle “Poker Run” on May 14th

Fresh out of the Inbox, this notice about the West Seattle Kiwanis “poker run” fundraiser – sounds like a lot of fun!


On May 14, 2011, the Kiwanis Club of West Seattle will host its second annual Charity Motorcycle Poker Run & Classic Car Show. Proceeds from this event support the PNW District Kiwanis Project, led by 2010-2011 Governor Frank Morehouse, which will fund cancer research at Children’s Hospital in Seattle. Donations will be made through the West Seattle Kiwanis 21st Century Scholarship Fund, a not-for-profit corporation operating under chapter 501c3 of the US Internal Revenue code. Our EIN is 91-1285427.

A poker run is an organized event in which participants must visit five to seven checkpoints, drawing a playing card at each one. The object is to have the best poker hand at the end of the run. The event is not timed—winning is purely a matter of chance.

Sign-in for this event starts at 8:30am at the lot on 40th Ave SW and SW Alaska St in West Seattle. Following the Poker Run, riders, passengers, and the general public are welcome to a BBQ and to view the Classic Cars on display presented by the Old Rides Club. Prizes will be presented to riders for the Best Hand, the Worst Hand, and other categories as determined. The pre-registration is $25 per rider and $5 for a passenger (if there is a passenger). Day of registration is $30 per rider, plus $5 per passenger. The cost of the BBQ for the general public is $10. Pre-registration closes on May 9th. Click Here To Register on the Kiwanis website.
