Hundreds of bikers will gather Sept. 4 to ride their motorcycles for the fifth annual Touchstone Energy Motorcycle Charity Poker Run, an event that raises thousands of dollars for the Crusade for Children.
Riders will begin in Somerset at South Kentucky RECC and end at Nolin RECC-Central Hardin High School in Cecilia. At each of the stops - Inter-County Energy in Danville, Blue Grass Energy in Lawrenceburg, and Salt River Electric in Shepherdsville - participants will draw cards to win cash prizes that will be given away at the end of the run.
"It's a very popular event," said Sheree Gilliam, vice president of customer services at Inter-County Energy. "Motorcyclists from all over the country migrate to Kentucky each year for this. All riders are welcome."
In addition to door prizes, including 31 envelopes filled with cash, participants will have a chance to win awards in categories such as "Best Hand," "Longest Distance" and "Oldest Bike Ridden."
