|Description||The Iwo Jima Survivors Association is pleased to announce their 2nd Annual Victory Ride Poker Run to be held May 22, 2011. |
The Mission of the Victory Ride is to raise funds to provide scholarships for students. The poker ride will also raise funds to carry on the mission of the Iwo Jima Survivors to honor, remember and give thanks to those who served to defend our country during WWII.
Sponsors for the 2011 Iwo Jima Survivors Victory Ride include Iwo Jima Survivors Association, Connecticut Cruise News Magazine, Connecticut Leathernecks Motorcycle Club, Gengras Harley Davidson, Haymond Law Firm, Hooters of Wethersfield, Hot Leathers of South Windsor, Support Our Survivors of Iwo Jima and Iwo Jima Memorial Foundation.
This event honors the Survivors who fought during the WWII Battle of Iwo Jima which took place 66 years ago and for those who did not return home.
The motorcycle poker run will be held rain or shine.
In person registration starts at 9:00 am and ends at 11:00 am. The cost is $25 per motorcycle with an additional $5 per passenger.
The ride will start at Gengras Harley Davidson in East Hartford after a short ceremony during which a special 48-star flag will be raised. Riders will travel at their own pace making several stops which will include the National Iwo Jima Memorial Monument where a ceremony will be held to honor the Iwo Jima Survivors.
The ride will end at Gengras Harley Davidson where riders will enjoy a post-ride party including food and music by a DJ. Raffle prizes will be drawn along with a 50/50 raffle and Grand Prize gift certificate to the winner of the poker run. Iwo Jima Survivors will be on hand to present awards and meet and speak with riders.
We are again seeking volunteers to help that day and sponsors to help both financially and with goods and services. If you are unable to attend, donations are gratefully accepted. Sponsorship forms, preregistration and additional details could be found on the Events page of our website www.SOSIwoJima.com or by calling Gary at 860-291-9666.
