The KARE for Kids Motorcycle Poker Run had 23 bikes and 39 riders that braved the rainy start on March 17, 2012. The approximately 65 mile ride started at Dawsonville Pool Room and ended at Lorena's Food & Spirits. Other stops included Foothills Chevron, Bad Moon Rising Cycle Shop, and Appalachian Biker Gear. One playing card was drawn at each of the five stops to create a poker hand with the top three hands winning cash.
The winners were:
1st Place ~ $100 - Jim Buckley - Four Tens ~ donated winnings back to KARE for Kids
2nd Place ~ $75 - Kirney - Three Threes
3rd Place - $50 - Trina - Three Twos
50/50 Drawing - Terry & Wanda Stephens - donated winnings back to KARE for Kids
