Arkansas State University-Beebe Searcy Campus has partnered with Sunrise Motorsports to host the 2nd Annual Poker Run on Saturday, April 25, beginning at 10 a.m. The event will start and end at Sunrise Motorsports, located at 800 Truman Baker Drive in Searcy.
Each participant will follow a course with checkpoints at each campus, drawing a playing card for a chance to have the best poker hand at the end of the ride. All motorcycles, jeeps, or anything drivable are welcome to participate in the poker run.
In addition to the poker run, there will be a raffle, silent auction, door prizes and food. Entertainment will be provided by Boots Bailey & The Boys, a central Arkansas band playing country and rock hits for a variety of venues. The band will be performing at Sunrise Motorsports from 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m.
Registration will be held from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m., and will be $20 per driver (hand) and $10 per passenger. All proceeds benefit the ASU-Beebe Searcy campus and SkillsUSA.
Last April, ASU-Beebe Searcy Campus sent a group of 26 students from various programs to participate in the statewide SkillsUSA competitions, with students earning 14 gold medals since 2014. “This is an excellent opportunity to participate in a fun event while supporting the area students who attend the SkillsUSA competitions each year,” said Ron Snyder, Power Sports instructor.
