RED BANK, NJ - The Red Bank Elks Lodge #233 is having a fundraising event on Sunday August 28th, to support our country’s veterans. The lodge is having a Motorcycle Poker run, where riders start at the lodge and travel to other Elks 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 the post-run party, featuring live music by the Steel Rail Blues band.
This 3rd annual memorial run honors James “Jimbo” Campbell, the lodge’s past Veterans Committee chairman, who was instrumental in the lodge’s relationship with the Marines 6th Motor Transport Battalion in Red Bank.
Registration on event day runs 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.
