Jeep Jam Poker Run 2017
The 4th Annual Jeep Jam Poker Run sure turned a lot of heads throughout Essex County today! The convoy was 147 Jeeps long this year! says Debbie Kay, President of the Windsor Jeep Club. "The goal was to raise $10 000 for local brain injury support programs offered through Assisted Living of SW Ontario and we surpassed that goal! The event raised $14,783.00" says Gord Causton, Vice President of the club.
The large convoy of Jeeps departed On the beach in Tecumseh at 11am and then traveled a scenic 76 kilometers throughout Essex County. Stops along the way included Mr. BIGGS in Belle River and Dockside On The Cove in Stoney Point. The Tilbury Pumpkin Patch offered a taste of off-roading but it was completely optional for participants to get their Jeep dirty. At each stop participants received a playing card. Prizes were awarded for the best poker hands and the absolute worst poker hand at the after party!
"The Jeep Jam has grown every year and ALSO and all the brain injury survivors that utilize our programs are very thankful of the Windsor Jeep Club's efforts" says Laura Kay, ALSO Manager and Jeep owner! 100% of the funds raised will stay locally in our community and will be directed to Assisted Living Southwestern Ontario's (A.L.S.O) Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) programs and services.
The event was sponsored on part by: Motor City Chrysler, Action Signs, Biz X Magazine, AM800 CKLW, In Play! Magazine, Lariviere Electric Ltd, Silver Stitch Embroidery, Red Rock Customs, and Velocity Injury Law. The official photographers for the Poker Run were Border City Images.
