|Description||The Veterans Guest House is located across the street from the Veterans Hospital in Reno, NV and is home away from home for Veterans and their families receiving treatment, either as an inpatient or an outpatient, at the Veterans Hospital.|
The Guest House receives absolutely no government money. It operates on donations only. Those donations come from people in the Northern Nevada community, local businesses and groups, such as ours, doing fundraisers.
The Guest House does not charge the guests. At the present time, they are operating at about 117% of capacity. They need our help.
For the past 2 years, we have put on a Poker Run for the Veterans Guest House and gave it the simple name of "Veterans Guest House Poker Run", because we intend on doing this every year. The first year we netted about $8000 for the Guest House, last year, our 2nd year, we presented them with a check for $10K.
This year we would like to make it $20K.
This year's Poker Run is scheduled for June 22nd. The Poker Run is not just a Fernley event, as it covers miles and miles of Northern Nevada.
There are Starting Points and Check Points in Fernley, Fallon, Silver Springs, Yerington, Carson City, and Reno! With Drawing Ticket stops in Virginia City and Dayton. So we not only cover Lyon County, we have Storey County, Carson, Washoe and Churchill counties.
For each start/checkpoint that the riders visit, they will receive a 'poker card' for their poker hand. There are also Drawing Tickets to be had for visitors to the Veterans Guest House and the Northern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery. A Drawing for prizes, as well as, a 50/50 Drawing for cash, will be held at the Finish.
At the end of the run, everyone meets at the Silverado Casino in Fernley for music, fun and lots of prizes.
