|Description||In it's 4th year, the Benjamin Franklin Memorial Poker Run has brought people from all over the United States to "RIDE OR DRIVE" for a great cause. The event takes place in Lansing Michigan... put up your hand... point at the middle of your palm... that's where you're headed.
Everyone is welcome, although the event is catered to motorcycle enthusiasts. We've seen our share of Harleys, Hondas, Yamahas, Corvettes, Classic Cars, Monster Trucks, and even minivans. But have we seen YOURS???
The event features 100 miles of great riding (or driving!) through beautiful mid-Michigan towns; with stops at great local restaurants and bars along the way. Get your card punched at each stop and get dealt your poker hand at the final celebration. Best Poker hand wins! The final stop includes food, beverages, raffles, a silent auction (and hopefully a good poker hand).
We ride (or drive) in memory of Benjamin Franklin III, who passed away from complications of Cerebral Palsy at 3 1/2 years old. Come and ride with Benjamin Franklin I & II, Momma April and the rest of the family (not to mention the hundreds of people that have become family). They are no relation to the guy on that bill in your pocket, but feel free to bring him or his buddies along. After all, this is a fundraiser, and all proceeds benefit United Cerebral Palsy of Michigan.
So wherever you are, make a trip to Lansing, Michigan this summer. We promise you a good time, a great ride, and a group of people that you'll want to see year after year.|
