(July 14,2019) Edinboro Lake…. To say it was just another beautiful day in the neighborhood would be an understatement, it was a fabulous day. The weather was fantastic and the turnout for the 2019 Edinboro Lake Kayak Poker Run was beyond expectations.
There were 170 registered kayaks, loads of volunteer helpers, and great music from Mark Eisert, Millennium Sound. Now add to that, lots of prizes from some generous merchants, and it all came together for a fun-filled successful event and fundraiser for Boro Women & Family Services (BWS).
BettyJo Lyons, BWS executive director, commented, “The demand for our services is increasing each year, and it’s events like the Kayak Poker Run that allow us to keep providing help, at no charge, to those in need in our communities. We just couldn’t do it without all the beautiful people who help us in so many ways.”
BettyJo also expressed heartfelt thanks to all the participants, volunteers, and merchants that helped make it such a great success this year.
Prizes donors were Edinboro Outdoors, Subway, Sunset Grill, Shadeland Pellet Grills, Edinboro Beverage, L.E. Photography, and the VanMeters gas card donation…. thanks to one and all!
We hope you will plan on joining us in 2020 for the 3rd Annual Kayak Poker Run, we have plans to make it even bigger and better… see you then!
