Annual Poker Run to raise funds for veteran and military causes

Ninth Annual Poker Run To Support Wounded Warrior Homes

The purpose of the annual Poker Run is to bring awareness to veteran causes, promote camaraderie, to be ambassadors to our community and ultimately to raise funds for veteran and military causes, like Wounded Warrior Homes. A poker run is an organized event in which participants on motorcycles must visit three checkpoints, drawing a playing card at each one. The objective is to have the best poker hand at the end of the run.

The American Legion Riders consists of The American Legion (veterans who have served), the  American Legion Auxiliary (wives, daughters, granddaughters, mothers, grandmothers of veterans) and the Sons of the American Legion (sons, grandsons of veterans). Their primary objective is to support the Military and Veterans, along with their families, and to be ambassadors to the community. 

About Wounded Warrior Homes

Wounded Warrior Homes, Inc is a local 501(c)(3) that provides transitional housing and re-integrative services to veterans with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and/or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Having stable housing may help reduce stress in at-risk veterans, an important aspect of suicide prevention. For more info, visit the website here.

See you there, San Diego
