Second place and $5,000 cash went to Tom Zegers, and this year, there was a duplicate second place winner, Mike and Pam Meehan of Outerlimits Marine of Newport Beach. They also collected $5,000 in cash. Third place went to Gary Smith as he walked away with 30 C-Notes. Ron Tesarski was the fourth place winner and collected $2,000 and Allen Rice was the fifth place winner with an extra $1,000 in his wallet.
There were numerous other cash winners with $32,000 in cash distributed to the winners. That number was matched and increased by $4,000 with the Children's Dental Center receiving over $35,000 in charity....an all time record for a one time event.
Once again, everyone involved walked away excited and looking forward to the Poker Run in 2005. For those doubters and bowlers, 2005 will be another banner year so continue to monitor the website for pictures from this year's event and keep your calendar open for next year's signature event. The motto for this year's event was SOLD, SOLD, SOLD as all the participants bought into the new concept and location and had the times of their lives.
