GFCBA First Annual Poker Run July 31st

Submitted by Juliann Doyle

The GFCBA is excited to announce our first fundraising event of 2021 – the "First Annual Greater Forest City Business Alliance (GFCBA) Poker Run"! We decided the time has come to get out and start having some fun and promote our region in the process. This will be a fun and interactive way to enjoy a ride through our beautiful area and reach beyond the Forest City town limits. Proceeds from our event will be used to enhance our "grant match funds", thus allowing the GFCBA to pursue grant monies to support membership needs and town beautification projects.

The event will take place on July 31, 2021, with registration opening at 10am at M & M Auto in Vandling. Participation is open but not limited to motorcycles and Classic Cars. The entry fee is $25 to play and $10 for each non-playing rider. Shirley's Restaurant and Elegante' will be on hand at registration for food and pre-ride socializing. At noon, the ride officially begins and will traverse our region, making stops at seven local establishments. These include Jake's Tavern, Arlo's, Chet's Place, Frank's Place, Simpler Times, The Beacon, The Stonehouse. We convene at the end at Mountain View Restaurant. It is a fabulous line up.

There are prizes! At the end of the run, the GFCBA will be awarding $500 for the BEST hand and $500 for the WORST hand. Many of the restaurant participants are planning to offer games and chances to win merchandise at their locations. There is something for everyone.

There are a variety of ways for you to participate and support the event. First, we have several sponsorship levels available, with tiered benefits for your support. Reach out to the GFCBA at for more information. Or find someone who will be riding and pay a minimal fee to participate. The ride ends at the Mountain View Restaurant in Clifford with entertainment, awards, food, and friends kicking off at 4:00pm. The Clifford Fireman's Picnic is also rolling that day, so there will be plenty of great causes to support.
