A bit of history about this Poker Run!4 years ago someone at the USO of Northern Ohio came up with the idea to host a Poker Run as a Fund Raiser. On a dreadfully rainy day, approximately 40 bikes came together to raise money for the USO of Northern Ohio. Unfortunately, due to many factors it did not work out well. Neither did the second year.In July of 2004 USO Volunteer Karen Crow was talking to her long time friends Bob and Peg West about the USO Poker Run she had just been on a few weeks before. Karen being extremely passionate about supporting the USO inspired Bob and Peg who own The Handle Bar in Bedford Heights to donate the proceeds from their Annual Poker Run to the USO of Northern Ohio. They donated nearly $1,500.00.The following year Karen together with her mother Betty, Peg West and Drue DePompei came up with the idea to convert the Handle Bar Annual Poker Run into a USO Run for the Troops with all the proceeds being donated to the USO’s Care Package Program. With the support and authorization of the USO of Northern Ohio the Annual USO Poker Run for the Troops was born. Thanks to the many donations that each of them pounded the pavement to get the 2005, 3rd Annual Poker Run for the Troops raised just over $3,000.00.This run is getting bigger year by year. Last year we decided it would be a great idea to have all of our stops be a veteran’s club, the response was overwhelming, and for that one day their doors are open and welcoming to our riders. I hope you will be able to join us for a great day of fun, riding, food and prizes all in support of the USO of Northern Ohio as They Serve Our Troops!
