WRC hosts annual Ride the Winds Poker Run

(Riverton, Wyo.) – The Wind River Hotel and Casino will be hosting their annual poker run on July 26 to help celebrate their motorcycle giveaway.

Ride the Winds Poker Run Registration begins at 10 am with the event starting at 2 pm. The casino will match the amount raised during the event and the winner will then select a charity where the money will be donated. All participants must be back at Wind River by 6 pm. The winners will be announced at 7 pm.

A poker run is a fund-raising event where participants travel to five locations to receive a playing card. At the end of the run, the player with the best hand wins the grand prize and will then select which charity will receive the donation. In its fifth year, past recipients of the donation include the American Cancer Society.

At 8 pm, the casino will also give away a 2014 Vintage Chief Motorcycle to one lucky winner. Players must swipe their Rewards Club Card at the Wind River Hotel and Casino to be entered into the drawing. Extra entries will be given to players who use their Rewards Club Card while playing their favorite slot machine or table game. Nine runner ups will receive $500. Hot seats will also be given out all weekend long.
