The Red Bank Elks Lodge has been proudly supporting these types of community outreach groups for over 100 years. These types of donations are made possible by the generous support that our members and the local community contribute during our fundraisers and events.

 

Giving Back to Our Veterans

The Red Bank Elks Lodge #233 is having a fundraising event on Sunday August 28th, to support our veterans. We’ll be having a Poker run, where motorcycle riders travel to other Lodges in the area (Long Branch, Jamesburg, and Old Bridge) garnering a card for their poker hand. Upon getting back to the Red Bank Lodge, the hands are scored and prizes given out, at our post-run party.

Registration is from 9-11am at the Red Bank Lodge, 40 West Front Street. Cost is $20 single riders, $10 for passenger, and extra $5 for a passenger’s poker hand. Cost also includes food, soda and beer at the after party. For more information check out our website at www.redbankelks.org, email info@redbankelks.org or call Chris Mason at 732-341-3010.
