Nebraska poker run set for this Saturday
This Saturday, Fremont, NE will be a busy place. The annual Ride to Cure Cancer NE poker run is on tap for its 12th consecutive year, and will be held regardless of the weather. The motorcycle and vehicle run has become a popular event and has donated over $60,000 to the American Cancer Society.
Registration for the run will take place between 8 and 10 AM at Tin Lizzy Tavern. The cost is $20 for the main rider and $15 for a passenger, which covers the run, food and entertainment. It is open to all vehicles, not only motorcycles.
From Tin Lizzy, riders next move to Arlie's Biker Bar in North Bend, then to Welsh Bar & Pizza in Pender. From there, it's off to Pop & Docs in Decatur, followed by the Veterans Club in Arlington and a final stop in Fremont at Izaak Walton on Military Ave. The after-run festivities will be held at Izaak Walton.
Raffle prizes, live music and food will be enjoyed at Izaak Walton. The Highway 30 West band will play at 5 PM, entertaining the crowd with western, oldies and rock and roll. At 6:30, BO'Dell & the Relics takes the stage to keep the party alive with its rock and roll from the 70s and 80s.
Last year, the poker run attracted 235 riders, resulting in around $5,000 being raised for the American Cancer Society Relay for Life of Dodge County.
