The Poker Run

On June 21st we will kick off the first Royal Flush Annual Charity Poker Run (Rain date: June 22nd). Car enthusiasts alike will organize for the purpose of raising money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation along with a fun filled day of cruising and meeting new new people.

Heres how the Poker Run works...

There will be five predetermined destination points during the course of the run. At each stop you will receive a poker card along with directions to the next rally point. The best five card hand at the end of the event wins. Cash Prizes/Gifts will be given away to the top three hands of the day. Co-Pilots are recommended! Mileage and Toll Amounts for each destination will be listed on your direction sheets.

Why are we hosting this event? Last year we participated in Keith's Charity Poker Run for the first time. The success of the event and the underlying purpose has motivated us to host our own event. It is our goal to spread the gift of charity and to offer car enthusiasts the chance to partake in a fun filled event.

The route will not be disclosed until the day of the event, although plan for a finish near the shore. The final destination will be an Italian restaurant for lunch (donation does not include lunch). Most items on the lunch menu are under $10 dollars. Here we will determine the winners of the Poker Run as well as announce the grand total of donations. The total distance to our final location will be around 100 miles.

This event is open to ALL SPORTS CAR MODELS AND BIKES!! A wide variety of makes and models will be represented from BMW to Audi to exotics such as Porsche and Ferrari!! Don't miss the opportunity to see and drive with your favorite sports cars on the road!!

Here are some pictures from Keith's Charity Poker Run...

Great Success!

We would just like to take this time to thank everyone again who participated in the Rally for Wishes. The event turned out to be a huge success from the turn out to the proceeds. In total we raised just over $2,000 for the Make-A-Wish foundation. It was a great fun filled day of meeting new people and sharing our passion for cars.

We opened up an account on Web Shots here to host the pictures of the rally. Anyone who would like to contribute pictures please send us an email at for the user name and password to host the images. Anyone who took video please email us the clips. We would like to compile a video of the rally for everyone.

Everyone that participated in this event, please email us so we can keep your name and information on file. All of you will get priority spots for the next event.

Thanks again everyone for coming out and making this event successful. If it wasn’t for your generosity it would not have been possible. Look out for another upcoming run this fall!
