Heritage Printing and Quick Copy is joining forces with Lake Lanier Island Resort, Sunset Cove Beach Cafe and Club and a host of other community minded businesses to sponsor the Castaways Poker Run.
This, the second annual “Pirates of Lanier” Castaways Boat Poker run on Lake Lanier will be held on Saturday September 11, 2010.
Funds raised will go to “Camp Sunshine”, a Georgia children’s camp program that offers an infusion of love, support, fun, acceptance and hope for children with cancer, and to the “Children of Fallen Soldiers” providing financial assistance to surviving children and spouses of our U.S. military service members who have lost their lives in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
The venue is fantastic, with boat slips, shallow water anchorages and soft beach areas for pontoon boats to slide up on the shore. If you wish, you will be able to dock at Sunset Cove or trailer your boat to your normal facility and drive to the Sunset Cove venue. There is ample parking at the Grand Hall overlooking Sunset Cove and the area is well secured. Lake Lanier Islands Resort will offer discounted rooms at the Resort if you wish to spend the night there, just mention Lanier Partners or “The Castaways Poker Run” when you make your reservations (770.945.8787).
Music for the party will be provided by Departure, “The Journey Tribute Band”, food and drink will be provided by the excellent kitchen at the Sunset Cove Beach Café & Club. We will have a 50/50 raffle and numerous other raffle items.
Poker hand prizes will be announced and the winners will be able to collect winnings about 5:00pm at the Pavilion area. This will be the “event of the year” so please join us, and practice your pirate lingo.
Please join us in helping the children.
