Gold Coast Hotel to Hold 2009 Poker Run to Benefit United Way of Southern Nevada Oct. 17

September 30, 2009 by  

The Gold Coast Hotel and Casino will hold its first ever Poker Run to raise money for the United Way of Southern Nevada on Saturday, October 17. In a day of fun and excitement, participants are invited to ride their motorcycles (or cars) on a trek through Southern Nevada, stopping at five locations as they build a poker hand in an attempt to win the $500 Grand Prize. The nearly 125-mile adventure, beginning and ending at the Gold Coast, has checkpoints at Bonnie Springs, Saddle West Pahrump and Mountain Springs Saloon.

Following the run itself, participants will be treated to a complimentary barbeque, live performances from Moanin’ Black Snakes and the chance to win one of seven $50 door prizes.

All net proceeds from the Poker Run will go to the United Way.
