EABB Poker Run and Coastal Chef’s Sampler
May 18 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 pm
Join us in the gorgeous beach town of Carrabelle, on May 18, 2019, for the second annual Poker Run and Coastal Chef’s Sampler. Onsite registration begins at 9:00 a.m.
This family-friendly event will include live music, food, drinks and much more. All proceeds benefit the Epilepsy Association of the Big Bend’s clients, a nonprofit agency that provides medical and social work services to those who have seizure disorders and epilepsy.
Details: A map will be given to each participant. Participants will board their boats, leave the marina at 10:00 a.m. toward Dog Island, complete five fun challenges at various checkpoints, receive a poker card at each, return to the starting point and enter their hand into the computer. If the hand matches the preselected combination, they will win a Nissan Titan Truck from Kraft Nissan and a boat – both worth more than $85,000! Proxy hands are available – please choose “proxy hand” when purchasing your tickets.
After the event, EABB will host a Chef’s Sampler from 6:30 p.m. – 10:30 p.m.! Tickets are only $75 per person. This includes amazing food from local coastal restaurants, wine, beer, open bar, a live band and much more!
You DO NOT have to own a boat to enter the poker run, but you MUST be 18 or older to buy a poker hand. As many hands can be played per person on each boat as it is legal for the boat to carry.
Lodging is available at the Franklin Inn Carrabelle. Make sure to mention the Epilepsy Association of the Big Bend to receive a special rate! Call (850) 697-4000 to make reservations!
