Poker Run Starts in
Hello Veterans, Car and Motorcycle Show friends!
I hope this finds you all well! We are looking forward to seeing you all this year.
First, I would like to thank you for being a part of the Veterans Show to help support our local veterans in need. Some of you have been with me since 2012! We have now raised almost a quarter million dollars all for the veterans!
I have been in close contact with the Hillsboro Fair Complex director about our August 14th Show….No reservations are being taken yet and when/if they do, we could only have a whopping 300 people in attendance! That would cover a few cars/motorcycles and a couple of volunteers! No food trucks, use of only 75% of the area, no vendors, no raffle, no speakers, etc., and we would have to hire social distancing monitors to a tune of $29/hr. each for 9 hours and on and on….Very Very sad. I know how we are all itching to get our cars out, have some fun and support our local veterans in need!
SO…We are putting on a POKER RUN. We will keep you informed here and also via Email. It will be on Saturday, August 14th and will be 80 miles from start to finish, there will be a total of 5 stops. Make sure to go to our registration page and sign up, cost is $25/person and $35/couple, we are going to have a fun and exciting day. There will be a prize for best and worst poker hand, there will have an option to purchase an additional card at the beginning for a better chance of winning if you choose. We will have dash plaques and a printed mug for the first 125 people to register. At the beginning of the Poker run we will be selling our 2022 Calendar and Tee Shirts. Please join us for our silent auction at the last stop, we have some wonderful gifts that were given to us to help the cause. The funds raised will be supporting the Oregon Paralyzed Veterans of America, the Veterans Village for homeless veterans and Disabled Veterans Benefit Fund. Thank you for supporting Saluting Our Veterans!
By the way, the van we/you purchased for the Veterans Village in 2019 was one of the best things that happened for them. They use it every day to transport veterans to appointments and to pick up food etc.
The funds raised this year will go to a few smaller projects in order to spread it around.
Our Shirts this year are focused around the stars and stripes! Order yours when you register for the Poker Run!
