2nd Annual Bikes/Boats Poker Run +Benefit

Good Morning All!!  I want to remind you about the 2nd Annual Bikes/Boats Poker Run.  This event is held to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and will take place at the Riverfront Amphitheatre.  The minimum donation is only $10, with children only being charged $5.  This is a great way to support a good cause and make a family day out of it.  There will be seven great bands that will be playing throughout the day from 11 a.m. - 11 p.m.  to keep everyone entertained, not to mention different events taking place throughout the day.
