American Legion Post 1995 holds second annual Poker Run

The American Legion riders in Long Beach participated in a Poker Run supporting our combat veterans.

Participants got their poker cards marked off as they traveled to restaurants and bars scattered across several cities until they reached their final destination.

The ride ended in D’Iberville where everyone came together for refreshments, live entertainment, a silent auction, and the reveal of the big prize.

The winner took home a cash reward for having the best poker hand. Event Organizer Charmain Woods said, “This is a great opportunity for us as veterans to help other veterans and our local community by getting the restaurants and bars involved in our poker run. That helps get them some advertisement and to get people out there to see new different places.”

This is the second annual Poker Run for Post 1995 and they expect to do it every year.
