Default Which Poker Runs this year were for Charity ?

I know the Leukemia Poker Run on the Chesapeake raised about $48k from the event. How many boats entered this run?

Another I was on was the Northern Chesapeake Bay Poker Run (Tomes Landing run) also in the Chesapeake Bay which raised 20+K for the local fire department.

What other runs this year contributed to Charity(s), and how much was raised ? how many boats were in each run ?

Hats off to these orginazations, and I'd rather do more of these runs next year than non charity runs.

LOTO Shootout is not a Poker Run, but it raises money for local Fire Dept.'s

I wonder, how many events were ALL for charity. Not just those with an auction where only those proceeds go to charity.

The Mike Beasley Memorial Poker Run in July on Smith Lake,AL will usually have about 100 boats,every cent goes to charity.All support people are volunteers. Over the last 6 years we have raised and distributed well over 100K.
