Poker Run Promotion Worth $25,000 Benefits Veterans

poker run promotion - national guardLooking for the perfect Veteran’s Day fundraising promotion?  Look no further!  Just take notes from this Army National Guard in the Great Plains, who insured a poker run promotion which benefitted multiple Army non-profits.

On the specified promotion date, 550 eager motorcyclists showed up to the event, which took place at the National Guard’s headquarters.  Each participant rode to 5 separate stops/locations to pick up a poker card.  At the end of the event, each participant entered their highest five card poker hand into Odds On Promotions‘ Lucky Hand Poker Run Verification Machine.  If a participant’s five card poker hand ended up matching Odds On’s preselected poker hand, they would have won a brand new 2012 Harley-Davidson Ultra Classic motorcycle, valued at $25,000.

While unfortunately, no one won the motorcycle, there was still a lot of good news to be had: Since each participant was charged $25 to participate in the poker run, that meant that $13,750 was fundraised that day!  Additionally, any club, organization, unit or chapter of this National Guard with the most paid entries received a $500 check if at least 400 riders attended the event that day (which they did)!

And last, but definitely not least, the good news is that no one went home empty-handed after the promotion, despite the fact that no one won the insured prize.  Smaller cash prizes were given to the 1st place, 2nd place and even lowest hand winner!
