    Update!

    A wild card stop has been added to the run just before the last stop at The Blue Heron Cove. Stop in and see them and purchase a wild card to strengthen your poker hand. The small donation of $5 for the wild card will help with the shipping of Operation Shoe Box items to our soldiers.

    Thank you central Florida for the huge turn out of support yesterday at the Veterans Awareness Poker Run to benefit Operation Shoe Box, your generosity will go a long way.

    Thanks to the countless volunteers from the Independent bikers, the U.S. Military Vets, and the Fruitland Park American Legion who helped make this benefit possible too.

    Over $2000.00 was raised and a truck load of OSB items.

    We'll have more follow up of pictures and details soon. Stay tuned.
