For millions of Americans, the thrill of riding the open road with nothing between you and the outside world but a helmet and a smile is pure heaven. It is for this reason that the roadways of Volusia county are crowded with bikers in March and October for some of the largest motorcycle rallys in the world.

On Saturday, May 10 at 9:00 a.m., motorcycle enthusiasts are invited to participate in a poker run in New Smyrna Beach to help raise money for an unfortunate victim of a wrong way crash, who loves the thrill of the wind on his face almost as much as he loves his children. Injured on the way home from work during March Bike Week by a drunk driver, Steve is struggling with the mounting costs of his medical care, and the fact that he cannot provide for his family.

The event will include stops at several local bar and grill establishments, including Critters Corner, the Oyster Pub, the Bar out Back, Shotz, and historic Pub 44. The cost of admission is $20 per bike, and more details can be found on the Poker Run for Steve Facebook page.

The event starts at Critters, then travels to the Oyster pub, then off to Pub 44, followed by a stop at Bar out back, with s short stopover at Shotz before finishing back at Critters. The $20 donation includes breakfast at Critters and a BBQ lunch at the end of the run, also at Critters. Lunch will be provided at Pub 44, which is offering a build your own burger bar for 3 bucks, or the burger bar and t shirt $10. The vent will also include a 50/50 raffle, as well as the poker hands.

Riders are also asked to donate an unwrapped gift for a 1 year old boy and girl, as Steve's twins birthday is at the end of May. If you are unable to take part in this event, but still want to help, please take a moment to donate online. His family and friends appreciate anything you can spare.
