Published 12:00 am Thursday, August 4, 2016

The American Legion Riders of Kennedy-Hall Post 106 will be holding their second annual “Poker/Legacy Run” Saturday. This charity poker run for motorcyclists raises money for American Legion college scholarships, which go to children of fallen soldiers.

Registration for the run starts at 9 a.m. Saturday at the Kennedy-Hall Post, located at 6250 N.C. 801. Organizer Rick Land said some 70 riders already are planning to participate and more are welcome.

“It’s going to be big this year,” Land said.

Kickstands are up at 10:30 a.m., and the ride will travel to American Legion Post 113 in Harmony, Post 55 in Winston-Salem and Samuel C. Hart Post 14 in Salisbury. Land said he expects the motorcyclists to be roaring through the Square in downtown Salisbury around 2:30 p.m. on their way to the Samuel C. Hart Post.

The riders should be returning to the Kennedy-Hall Post between 4:30 and 5 p.m., according to Land.

There will be food, entertainment, door prizes and a 50/50 drawing at the end of the ride.

The cost is $15 per rider and $10 per passenger.

Proceeds will support the American Legion Legacy Run and the accompanying American Legion Legacy Scholarships, meant for the children of parents who have been lost in war.
