Thumbs up 2012 Orlando Jeep Club Charity Poker run September 22



This year, 100% of the profits from raffle sales and donations are going to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Team Margie's Marauders!

Margie, a part of our club family, recently passed away battling cancer. She was one of the top donators last year and we would like to keep her memory alive this year by surpassing last years total. Co-incidentally, the society's local 'Light the Night Walk' this year is also on her birthday.

If you would like to make a donation to the team, regardless of your ability to participate in this event, to honor the memory of Margie, you may do so at this team page:

We've been hard at work making sure this is going to be a great event!

Remember, at the finale location we will have some great items up for raffle. Some of the larger items include:
- A Winch!
- Mopar Front Bumper for a JK
- Optima Yellow Top Battery
- High Lift Jack
- Stanley tool chest and cabinet set


...and more...

But WAIT, remember how we said 100% of the profits from raffles and our 50/50 goes to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society? Well, here's an exciting on-line fund-raising incentive for you...

Get your friends and family to donate on-line and earn 25% the value you raised in FREE raffle tickets for use in your choice of either the general or WINCH raffle! It's that simple.

Participating is as easy as 1-2-3:

1. 'Join' our team named Margie's Marauders:
http://www.lightthenight.org/ncfl/re...;teamID=241536

2. You will receive your own, personalized link just for your fund raising. Post this link on facebook, email friends or relatives, etc asking for donations.
Make you are using your personalized link so their donations track properly to your name.

3. At the poker run, visit the raffle table with your photo ID - we'll confirm your earnings and give you 25% the value of those earnings in FREE raffle tickets.

Strategy tip: Use your on-line tool to fund raise from family, friends,etc, but ensure to use your personal funds to purchase raffle tickets directly at the Poker Run for 100% dollar value.

This just in... our friends over at Superchips just donated an iHAWK for our raffle!

The list just keeps getting sweeter! Are you taking advantage of the FREE raffle ticket opportunity? I mean, raffle tickets will of course be for sale the day of the vent, but why not increase your chances

It will be a blast!

In a poker run, you visit multiple locations. At each location you pick one card and that is recorded on your score sheet. You will meet lots of great Jeep friends and often people form into caravans, driving to each location together.

You have to visit a minimum of 5 locations to get enough cards to have a hand of poker.
There is an option to visit an additional location to purchase up to 3 additional cards to better your chances of winning.

At the finale location (Wing House), using the score cards the winning poker hand is determined. The winner gets a trophy and some prizes.

That's the poker part of it.

We have additional fun things happening too...
There is a min-game at each location you visit. Each is themed to be related to Jeep-life or the location you are visiting. Examples: Jeep math test, RTI ramps, Balance beams, shooting game, etc... There is a best score winner chosen and prize given for each individual locations mini-event. People have a lot of fun with this part; it makes visiting every location on the list worth it.

There are some AWESOME raffle prizes at the finale location. We sell raffle tickets for these.

Part of the fun in participating with this is also not knowing what to expect and just sort of having an adventure with it
