Moose Poker Run Jan. 26

January 16, 2019
Pine Island Eagle

To the editor:

The Pine Island Moose 1954 has been having an Annual Bicycle Poker Run for over 20 years. The Annual Pine Island Poker Run is set for Jan. 26. The Poker Run starts on the south end of the island at Low Key Tiki, with additional stops that include Ragged Ass Saloon, American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars and finishing at the Moose Lodge. High card winners get monetary prizes, and during the afternoon we give away prizes, T-shirts, hats, gift cards, etc. Cards are available at the Moose, with cards available at all stops on the day of the Poker Run. The event starts at 10 a.m. and all cards must be submitted by 3 p.m. at the Moose Lodge.

The event helps our island economy, provides the 200-plus participants with an enjoyable day and most of all provides the necessary funding for our Youth Scholarship Program. The proceeds of this fun event help provide $1,000 scholarships for our Pine Island high school seniors. To date we have provided more than $70,000 in scholarships to help defray the incidental cost of attending on need, the students volunteer resume, and academic achievements. Applications for these scholarships are available for our school districts west high schools.

We are asking for donations of gift cards, appropriate items, or a cash donation for this event. Please drop your tax deductible donations off at the Moose Lodge prior to Jan. 25 so everyone is credited for their generous donation.
