Blindconnect, Inc. will host the 6th Annual Poker Run on Sunday, October 18th, 2009. The event is a day of fun in which Teams of up to 4 people drive (not run) to a variety of locations around Las Vegas to draw playing cards in order to raise money for programs that benefit blind and visually impaired adults in Southern Nevada.
The Poker Run starts at 11:00 a.m, beginning at First Transit, 3214 Citizens Avenue in North Las Vegas. Onsite registration begins at 10:15 a.m. Teams of up to 4 members are encouraged – giving people a chance to have more fun, be sponsored and raise more money. (Be sure to bring along extra money for raffle tickets and special purchases.) Choose entry fee levels of $25, $100 or $200. Teams that pay higher entry fees are eligible for bigger prizes. The three best poker hands overall will win cash prizes based on their entry fee and their place in the top three hands.
Blindconnect, Inc. is a Nevada nonprofit that provides information, referral and peer support to blind and visually impaired adults. Proceeds from the Poker Run will help Blindconnect raise funds for the much-needed Angela’s House programs, including life skills training and adjustment to blindness.
