15th Annual Herrin Elks Poker Run
HERRIN -- Plenty of people roared into Herrin on their motorcycles Sunday for the 15th annual Elks Poker run. The event benefits crippled children and other charities.
Riders began with breakfast at the Herrin Elks lodge, before taking off on their drive around southern Illinois. The Elks lodge also raffled off a brand new Harley Davidson, and the first place hand received a $2,000 cash prize
"I just think it's the community support. They know what we do and we've helped a lot of people. I just think we have a strong community and that's what's important. The people come and they know that we're helping people that's what matters," explains Elks Lodge Assistant Becky McVey.
