Local Elk’s Lodge #613 Raise $6,250 in Annual Veterans Poker Run
SANTA BARBARA, CA – September 26, 2014 - The Santa Barbara Lodge #613 raised $6,200 for the local Veterans during their annual Poker Run. Over 60 motorcycle riders participated in the event, which had two courses, running north to south, and south to north, between Ventura and Paso Robles, CA. When each riders’ course was complete, they enjoyed a Tri-Tip and Chicken dinner and later danced to the local Johnny Rocket Band.
The annual event helps the Santa Barbara Elks Lodge raise money for their many Veterans-In-Need programs, including the Veteran’s Clinic and “Take A Vet To Lunch” luncheon, which is held the first Friday of every month at the Santa Barbara Elks Lodge #613, at noon. Also the Elks provide veterans-in-need with cash credit cards and bus tokens.
