Firefighters Select Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society As Benefiting Charity for Annual Poker Run

(SAVANNAH, GA) The local chapter of the Red Knights International Firefighters Motorcycle Club announces that their annual Poker Run will be held Sunday, April 24 and will benefit the Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society (LDSS). Registration for the 2.5 hour motorcycle run will begin at 9:30 a.m. at Southern Biker Gear in Richmond Hill. Proceeds collected from the event will directly support LDSS.

LDSS is a family support group to benefit people with Down syndrome and their families through a variety of efforts. The Poker Run specifically benefits Camp Buddy, The Night of Champions, and the annual Buddy Walk.

“We greatly appreciate the firefighters selecting the Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society as the organization to benefit from this year’s event,” said Candy Bogardus, LDSS president. “We are always looking for ways to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome.”

In addition, a family-friendly event is set to celebrate the end of the run at Savannah Harley Davidson, 1 Fort Argyle Road in Savannah, to include interactive games, a silent auction, door prizes, food, and live entertainment from Jacob Boswell, Taylor Cook and Greg Park.
