SABATTUS — In partnership with area snowmobile clubs, Community Credit Union will host a Poker Run to raise funds for Maine Credit Union’s Campaign for Ending Hunger.
The event will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 22, at Glen Dube Excavation, 118 Littlefield Road.
A Poker Run requires participants to travel (typically by snowmobile but for this event any mode of transportation is allowed) to local businesses that are noted as “Poker Stops” to get their card stamped. Then, based on the number of stops, the participant is dealt a poker hand at the event site.
The cost is $25 for non-snowmobile club members and $20 for members; includes a poker hand, a beans and franks dinner and fireworks show.
A cash prize of $1,000 will go to the winner.
For those that want to support the cause by just attending the dinner and fireworks show, the cost is $5 per person.
Maine Credit Union’s Campaign to End Hunger is an initiative nearly all Maine credit unions participate in. Since 1990, the year the Campaign began, Maine’s credit unions have raised and distributed more than $4.8 million to help end hunger in Maine. All of the money raised by credit unions stays in Maine and goes directly to hunger organizations and food pantries locally.
