Bikers riding for a good cause

June 24, 2005

Thomasville--  The "Dixie Bikers" are holding their fifth annual "Twilight Poker Run" on Saturday.

Registration starts at five pm at "Beef O-Brady's" restaurant in Thomasville. The event is called a "Poker Run" because each biker gets a playing card at each of the stops on the way to Cairo. When it's over, the one with the best hand wins. Organizer Mike Maxwell says all of the proceeds to the Halcyon Home.  "It's just some really good people who help these women and children out. Your heart goes out to them. But they have a really good success rate," he says.

The "Poker Run" is usually held in May. But coordination problems forced it to be pushed to June.
