Lions Club Hosts Second Poker Run in Jane Lew

Posted: Updated:

Bikers around the area were supporting a local philanthropy Saturday.

The Jane Lew Lions Club held its second annual Poker Run.

Riders started at the Robin's Nest Travel Center before taking a ride that took them through Philippi and Fairmont before heading back south.

Proceeds from the event will go to support the Lions' mission to provide eye care to those in need.

Organizers said  funds from the event make a big difference in helping that mission.

"We have one optometrist who we work with all the time, and so we try to budget in the year to have enough to cover anyone who applies, so this helps," said Jane Lew Lions Club President Ruth Straley.

The Lions Club will also hold a Longaberger Bingo fundraiser in mid-July to keep funding the care they provide.
