The Action Associates and Multi-County Youth Services Poker Run was deemed a success. Registration was a little lower than expected but everyone had a great time. The ride was great, the food was great and everyone enjoyed listening to the live band, the Tailgators. High hand was won by Claudio Elizondo and low hand was won by Kenny Smith. Each of these winners donated their winnings to Action Associates and Multi-County Youth Services. Congratulations guys and thank you for your support.
The poker run was approximately 240 miles and the weather was great. It was a little hot, but it was a very enjoyable ride. Thank you to all who registered for this event.
