Golf Cart Poker for Schools

With the beginning of another school year just around the corner, the 6th Annual Bolivar Peninsula Lions Club Poker Run was a gambling success. The very popular event attracted 626 registered participants in 292 golf carts, ready to play poker to help raise money for the Crenshaw and High Island Schools. Registration began early Saturday morning at Jose’s Cajun Restaurant under rainy skies. By the time the poker run kicked off, the clouds cleared and the sun cheered everyone along. At each location along the route, the players were welcomed with open arms, food, and beverages to enjoy. And Enjoy they Did! The first stop was Tiki Beach Bar & Grill followed by the Eagles and Steve’s Landing. The carts ended at Stingaree for the final card draw, awards, and live auction. See all the Golf Carts
