Fundraising event raised $5,000 for communities
Upper Cumberland Community Foundation is honored to announce the success of the first Poker Run fundraising event, which raised over $5,000 to be granted to communities within the Upper Cumberland region.
Over a dozen local businesses and community volunteers assisted in sponsoring and hosting the event, which was held Saturday, August 10th, with a total of 31 bikes gathered for the UCCF Poker Run ride. The ride began at Wildcat Harley-Davidson in London and was comprised of four stops including Williamsburg, Barbourville, Pineville, and Corbin.
The Foundation plans to continue the Poker Run as an annual fundraising event and hopes to have even more participants next year.
