Charity Poker Run 8/30



Motorin' for Wishes
Inaugural Charity Poker Run 2015

Make-A-Wish Alaska & Washington grants about 350 wishes per year to kids with life threatening medical conditions. Unfortunately, there are about 500 kids per year that qualify for a wish. This event will help close this gap and bring Make-A-Wish closer to its goal of every eligible child receiving a wish.

The Concept: A fun drive with 5 stops where you draw a poker card at each stop. At the last stop, prizes are awarded to best and worst poker hands.

When: August 30th (rain or shine)
Registration opens at 8am
Event begins at 9am

Where:Starts at Top Pot Donuts in Issaquah and ends at NW MINI. Includes a stop at British Bites which is a British grocery store, bakery and cafe.

Cost: $20 donation
Additional hands/passengers $10

Prizes for best and worst hands. Also a 50/50 raffle.

More details to follow

Can't wait for this event, even if the weather isn't ideal. Rumor has it that Top Pot is making a special donut for the event and donating the proceeds to Make-A-Wish. Hope to see you there.

Tomorrow's the day. Things you'll need:

-Full tank of gas

-Possibly a rain jacket or umbrella (let's hope not though)

-An empty boot for all the prizes we have lined up to give away thanks to our generous sponsors including a MINI bike, MINI luggage, Union Jack apron, Union Jack iPad cover, Top Pot mystery box, Griots products, & more.

-An appetite. Top Pots is selling a special Make-A-Wish Donut and donating the proceeds, and NW MINI is feeding us all lunch at the finish line.

Registration is between 8 and 9am, then the cars head out after a brief drivers meeting at 9amish.

We hope to see you all there!

In spite of the weather we had 25 very generous poker players turn out for the event today, and helped us to raise $1,326 for Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington! The best hand of the day went to Sherrie Monnett with a full house, and the low hand winner was Bryan Lane with a hand of ace,2, 3, 6, 8. A special thanks to our sponsors NW MINI, British Bites, and Top Pot Doughnuts for the great prizes, the special doughnuts, and the great lunch at NW MINI. Thank you all!
