Please join friends for a 140-mile Poker Run starting at Ryan’s Driftwood cafe in Clinton, with stops in Redding at The Redding Roadhouse, Naugatuck at Dee-mans, North Haven at Steel Horse Saloon and back to the Driftwood for prizes, raffles, food, and music.

The run is a special fundraiser in honor of Nicholas, a young boy who had a series of medical conditions to overcome. 

Nicholas was a 2 1/2 year old sweet little boy, born hearing impaired, and near the end of the adoption process with two special friends Kelly and Al Shepard. Taken into their home with his sister Cassie, Nicholas tragically passed away from an infection in his heart while sleeping on July 6th.

This year’s proceeds will split between the Clinton Rotary Cancer Relief Fund and Soundbridge, the organization that had been working with Nick, Kelly and Al which allowed Nick to advance in leaps and bounds.

Even if you don’t ride, any donations are appreciated, and you can come for the raffles and shenanigans at the end.

Registration:  9:00 am

Shotgun Start:  10:30 am

Back at the "Wood" (Driftwood):  4:30 pm

Donation:  $15/hand.  Riders pay the $15 and receive a poker hand dealt to them.

Rain Date:  September 16th
