Paint the lake purple for Relay for Life

Join BJ and Friends Relay For Life Team on Friday evening and Saturday when they host a Relay For Life “Paint the Lake Purple Poker Run” at Tamarac Marina on High Rock Lake.

To participate, boaters buy a $50 ticket for two persons before Friday (although there may be a few tickets available opening night) through a team member or at the Marina ($50 per hand includes 2 armbands, and a BBQ plate each with the sides on Saturday).

On Friday night between 6:30 and 9 p.m., players receive a welcome packet and draw the first card. The Poker Run starts at noon on Saturday and ends at 5 p.m. There will be five stops listed in the packet, and the stops may be made in any order.

There will also be single armbands available on Friday night for $25 donation per person, but they will not be eligible to draw cards for a poker hand, only ride along. The last card draw will be at 5:30 p.m. Saturday at Tamarac Marina. For more information, contact Kevin Frey at 704-202-5408. Tamarac Marina is located at 9120 Bringle Ferry Road.

DJ Eddy Harwood will entertain on Friday and Saturday.
