Krystal’s Ride

For those of you new to the blog, I lost my little sister back in 2007. She was 21 and passed away unexpectedly due to an undiagnosed congenital heart defect. My cousins and I established a scholarship fund in her memory. Our goal is to raise $25,000 to fund a scholarship at Thomas More for education majors – just like Krystal.

We've hosted two benefits and silent auctions, a Max & Erma's event, and a wine tasting. This time, we're shooting for a slightly different audience and I'm pretty excited about it. We're hosting a motorcycle scramble and poker run around Northern Kentucky.

Krystal’s Ride will be held this Saturday, starting at the Florence Elks Lodge #314 on Dixie
Highway. Registration will be from
10:30am to 12:30pm.  Cost is
$20.00/$25.00 per couple. Participants will follow a recommended route,
stopping at predetermined businesses along the way to gather playing cards in
order to build the best poker hand before returning to the starting point.  I'll be sitting at Dickmann's Sports Cafe in Fort Wright most of the day if you want to swing by. My job? To hand out specialized poker cards.

This is the first year for the Poker Run and we hope to make it an annual event. The event travels through several
Kentucky counties and even extends out to the Rabbit Hash General Store. The
ride brings business to many local establishments while providing friendly
competition among the riders. Food, entertainment, a motorcycle show, and
prizes for the best poker hand will be available after the event. Admission to
post-event activities, beginning at 5 pm, is $5.00.
