Poker Run! Women Supporting Women
July 12th--Redmens Lodge, Clyde Ave Fruitland.
Motorcycle Ride & Poker run for Women Supporting Women. This local organization servicing Maryland, Delaware, and Virginia supports and counsels victims of cancer. This is especially important in our area as for reasons not really known we have one the highest instances of cancer per capita in the entire nation. Much of the focus of Women Supporting Women is on Breast cancer but counseling and information is available are available for most other types of cancer as well.
Being a cancer survivor myself I appreciate the supreme effort of these ladies in their quest for comfort to those who suffer this dreaded disease.
If you like to ride a bike and would like to help this group with their worthwhile cause, please consider riding in the "Poker Run" this Saturday July 12th. The ride is about 80 miles long and takes about three hours beginning and ending at the Redmen Lodge in Fruitland. Scheduled stops include Bucks Store on Dublin Road in Somerset County, Spikes in Princess Anne, and Wicomico Yacht Club. Entry Fee for the run is just $15.00 and includes BBQ chicken supplied by the Redmen. There will be entertainment, 50/50 raffle, and door prizes as well.
Please come out this Saturday and enjoy the ride as well as supporting a worthy cause.
