Bikes and Trikes and Food and Folks........

.....and door prizes, and auction items, and a 50-50 drawing, friendship and fellowship, and most of important of all----------Hope for a Cure. All of this and more was to be found at the 5th annual Breast Cancer Poker Run, Ride for Awareness sponsored by Women Supporting Women held this past Saturday. Early Saturday morning the ladies set up the canopies for registration for all the motorcycle riders that would soon be arriving. And arrive they did! A little over 200 bikes and trikes registered for the 80 mile ride that started at the Redmens Lodge in Fruitland and took them to Princess Anne, Crisfield, Rumbley, Allen and back to Fruitland for a lunch provided by Phat Boys BBQ and the five card poker draw. All in all approximately $ was raise by this event to support this wonderful grass roots organization. Below are some photos from the days activities. Enjoy!

The registration table stayed busy for a while as the bikes arrived.

The parking lot and the adjacent field quickly filled with bike and riders.

One the beautiful custom trikes that participated in the ride.

Phat Boyz BBQ stayed busy after the ride was finished.

Without a doubt some of the best pulled pork I have ever tasted!

Bill Reddish of Delmarva Broadcasting was the guest auctioneer for the day.

Special thanks to all who contributed to the cause and made the event a success was displayed on the back of this years souvenir T-shirt.

All in all a little over $8800.00 was raised in this years event and once again, all money raised by Women Supporting Women stays in the local area and benefits local patients. All of the services provided by WSW is 100% free to those in need of their assistance.
