Fall Poker Run and Car Show is Saturday

BOWLING GREEN—The Caroline County Sheriff’s Office and the NKMC Grey Ghost Chapter are co-hosting the Fall Poker Run and Car Show on Saturday in Bowling Green.

This is a charity event to benefit Project Lifesaver. Project Lifesaver is a national program in which citizens who are enrolled wear a small transmitter on the ankle or wrist that emits a unique tracking signal. The purpose of the transmitter is to provide a location for the local project lifesaver team, as well as a trained emergency team, in case an enrolled citizen is missing.

Nearly 2,300 participants have been rescued through the Project Lifesaver program. Wanderers are found within an average of 30 minutes, as opposed to hours or days. This can be, and is, a significant resource to families that need assistance in  dealing with autism, Alzheimer’s and similar conditions.

The event will be held “rain or shine” and all cars are welcome to participate. In addition to the Poker Run and Car show, there will be food, musical entertainment, various vendors, and exciting demonstrations.

NKMC is a motorcycle club and riders will make a 77 mile (1 hour, 50 minute) ride from Bowling Green to Walkerton in King William County and back to Bowling Green.

Registration, first card and last card drawing will be done at the Old Courthouse on Main Street in Bowling Green. There will be cash prizes for best and worst hands. Registration begins at 9 a.m. There is a $15 donation per driver, and $10 donation per passenger. Additional donations are accepted and welcome.
