Local bikers will help feed the hungry by participating in a Poker Run to benefit Emergency Food Network on July 17.
The South Sound Vintage Motorcycle Enthusiasts (VME) is hosting the event which is open to all motorcyclists whether they are VME members or not. The entry fee is $10, all of which will be donated to Emergency Food Network.
Community events like this play an important role in helping meet the needs of hungry Pierce County neighbors. Every dollar makes a difference. Emergency Food Network is able to distribute $12 worth of food for every $1 raised. Last year, they provided more than 16 million pounds of food to 70 food banks throughout Pierce County accommodating 1.4 million visits from Pierce County residents in need.
The Poker Run starts at the Emergency Food Network Distribution Center (3318 92nd St S, Lakewood 98499) with riders leaving between 10:00 am – 11:30 am. The run ends at Emergency Food Network’s Mother Earth Farm (15208 102nd St E, Puyallup 98374). Riders will stop at multiple locations along the way to collect cards to add to their poker hand. The person with the best poker hand at the end of the run wins. Prizes and awards will be presented at 4:00 pm at the farm.
