Poker run an aces high hand for char­ity

Pilbara News - - News - Tom Zaun­mayr

The Parabur­doo Rid­ers As­so­ci­a­tion raised some much-needed funds for lo­cal char­i­ties in late July on its an­nual poker run.

A con­voy of mo­tor­bikes headed from Parabur­doo to Tom Price and back again to raise funds for the Royal Fly­ing Doc­tor Ser­vice and the Parabur­doo Youth Cen­tre.

Parabur­doo Rid­ers As­so­ci­a­tion sec­re­tary Maka Kemp said the rain failed to spoil a good day out on the roads.

“We were down on num­bers, but con­sid­er­ing the weather it was pretty good,” he said.

“Most of our funds go back to the com­mu­nity and the rest goes into run­ning our shows.

“All the bike clubs do them and it’s just a way of get­ting the com­mu­nity and other clubs in­volved as much as we can to sup­port each other.”

Mr Kemp said the pres­i­dent and mem­bers had gone to great ef­fort to or­gan­ise the event.
