Boating and jet ski enthusiasts are invited to the Discovery Bay Lions Club’s annual Big Cat Poker run on Aug. 11 and 12.
The two-day, family-friendly, charity event travels from Pittsburg to Stockton and welcomes boats of all sizes and speeds, with two boat routes to choose from.
“We are really looking forward to the event,” said Glenn Hoffman, Lions Club president. “The economy is good, the boats are good and we have a lot of interest this year.”
The cost for the weekend event is $150 per person or $100 for first-time participants. Tickets include one poker hand, an event T-shirt and hat, a lunch run and Delta tour on Friday, along with the evening’s food and entertainment. Saturday’s events include the poker run, three meals and the evening’s entertainment. The 925 Party Dance Band will perform on Saturday night.
Saturday’s evening party at the Discovery Bay Marina is open to the public. Proceeds from this year’s live auction event will benefit Some Gave All – The Joey Graves Foundation and the Service Dogs for Veterans organization.
Overall proceeds from the event will benefit local churches and community organizations.
