22nd Annual Christmas Poker Run for Beach Kids set for Dec. 10
The Beach Baptist Church is revving up for its 22nd annual poker run and Bikes for Mike ride this Sunday.
Sign up begins at 10 a.m.at Junkanoo’s on the Beach, and the run continues at Lani Kai, Shark Bar and Grill, Ralph’s in Cape Coral, and back toward the beach at Valarie’s Lounge. At the end, all participants will get a buffet meal.
The cost is $20 per bike and $10 for additional rider or $20 to ride the bus. The fundraiser benefits the Lee County Sheriff’s Youth Activity League and helps the Beach Baptist Church purchase gifts for children on the island for the holidays.
Families need to contact the church at email@example.com or 239-463-6452. The church would like to get a small “wish list to Santa” to get gifts at the Dec. 17 visit from Santa., and include your child’s name and size for clothing.
Beach Baptist and others volunteers gather Dec. 13 to wrap the gifts collected from Junkanoo, Valarie’s and the church. Sunday Dec. 17, Santa and his helpers hand out the gifts.
