KC Soldiers' Angels and American Legion Post 370

Mark your calendars! Our first major fundraiser for Soldiers' Angels, a Poker Run, is scheduled for Sunday, June 3, 2007.

A Poker Run is an organized event where riders travel over a predetermined route and at designated stopping points, select a playing card. At the end of the run, the person with the best poker hand wins a prize. This event will be open to both motorcycle and car riders and may also include a dinner, silent auction, and a 50/50 drawing.

Ronda G., in cooperation with local American Legion Post Rider members, is chairing the Poker Run Committee. If you are interested in serving on this committee, the next meeting will be held on Sunday, March 11 at 11:00 am at Post 370 in Overland Park. The post is located on W. 75th St. just west of Metcalf.

There will be a breakfast that morning from 9am til noon. Breakfast will include an omelet made to your request, toast, hashed browns, bisquits and gravy, fruit, juice and coffee. All of the proceeds after cost will go to purchasing phone cards for troops supported by Soldiers Angels. Cost is $6 per person.

If you are interested in helping with this fun event but can't make it to the meeting, please contact KC Soldiers' Angels

Please continue to look for information on this event in upcoming monthly newsletters and on this website.

We had a great meeting on Saturday. We had about 20 people from both Soldiers' Angels and the American Legion.

Everyone is really excited about this project. The Angels got together for a picture and some videos (video to come).
